POINT BLANK
1967, Warner Bros., 92 min, USA, Dir: John Boorman

Director John Boorman's neo-noir is also a brain-twisting deconstruction that changed the look of action films. Lee Marvin, seemingly back from the dead, is out for payback. With John Vernon, Angie Dickinson.


NATIONAL LAMPOON’S ANIMAL HOUSE
1978, Universal, 109 min, USA, Dir: John Landis

"We can do anything we want. We're college students!" John Landis’ third picture as a director was a huge hit and furnished the blueprint for countless subsequent teen comedies. Set in 1962, the college Delta House fraternity will take any rowdy, rough-housing misfit who applies (prime evidence is Bluto, played by John Belushi in his breakout movie role), and this does not sit well with Dean Wormer (John Vernon). The Dean enlists the rival, uptight, straight-arrow fraternity of bluebloods to help get the Delta boys off-campus for good, and a full-scale war erupts. With Tom Hulce (AMADEUS), Verna Bloom, Peter Riegert, Karen Allen, Tim Matheson.
