See these "tough guy" films: Get Carter + Point Blank @ the Brattle

Get Carter (1971)

Oh, for the days when they made blunt and brutal noir thrillers with names like Get Carter (1971; 2:30 + 7 pm) and Point Blank (1967; 5 + 9:30 pm). In the former, directed by Mike Hodges, Michael Caine stars as the title British hood who suspects foul play in his brother's death and scours the grimy streets of Newcastle in search of remorseless payback. In the latter, directed by John Boorman, Lee Marvin plays a hired killer, double-crossed and left for dead, who then tracks down those responsible in search of remorseless payback - of the $93,000 owed him. They screen on Friday, August 10 as part of the Classic Tough Guys series at the Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St, Cambridge | $9.75; $7.75 students; $6.75 seniors | 617.876.6837 or
