Point Blank is a 1967 American crime film directed by John Boorman and starring Lee Marvin and Angie Dickinson, adapted from the noir crime pulp novel The Hunter by Donald E. Westlake, writing as Richard Stark. Boorman directed the film at Marvin's request and Marvin played a central role in the film's development and staging. The film was not a box office success in 1967 but has since gone on to become a cult classic, eliciting praise from such critics as film historian David Thomson.
