Lee Marvin is out for revenge on his partners in crime in this modernist thriller.
Dir John Boorman
With Lee Marvin, Angie Dickinson, Keenan Wynn, John Vernon
Left for dead at Alcatraz by his partners in crime, the aptly named Walker (Marvin) returns to get the money he’s owed and wreak revenge on those who cheated him. As fragmented, vivid and packed with wish-fulfilment as an obsessive dream, Boorman’s modernist classic – from a Richard Stark novel – makes magnificently expressive use of the landscapes, architecture and mores of 60s California.
