Lee Marvin is excellent as a double-crossed man who'll get what's coming to him, one way or another…
Dir John Boorman
With Lee Marvin, Angie Dickinson, Keenan Wynn
Walker (Marvin at his best) is double-crossed and left for dead in Alcatraz by his partners in crime – but they haven’t reckoned on his need for revenge and his desire for the money he’s rightly due. Boorman’s masterpiece of modernist cinema depicts the changing mores and methods of organised crime, fragments the Californian landscape into a strange, sunlit underworld, and evokes a doomed man’s wish fulfilment.
