Day #21,882

Walk km 9122-9129: running errands via Science World

outside of Waterfront Station
approx km 9123 Cordova Street

Movie rewatch: Point Blank (1967, John Boorman)

Since I just finished reading "The Hunter" I thought this would be a good time to watch the movie version. The main thing that Hollywood did here was make this a good guy/bad guy story. The novel is a bad guy/bad guy story. Parker is after "his" money (it's not really his) and he kills a whole stack o' people to get it. Here, they make sure that Lee Marvin's hands are clean. They obviously didn't think that the movie going public was ready for a movie where there are no "good guys".
