Boorman’s breakthrough picture struck a balance between traditional hard-boiled noir and burgeoning stylistic adventure, with arresting editing by Henry Berman and California locales excitingly shot by Philip Lathrop. Lee Marvin is in his element as a criminal who, double-crossed and left for dead, implacably comes after what’s his—no more, no less. With Angie Dickinson, Keenan Wynn, Carroll O’Connor, and John Vernon at his slipperiest.
