This was a bit odd to read right now, as I'm websurfing while watching Bogdanovich's 1968 film _Targets_.

I have never seen it, @Steve B. What's your take on it?

Steve B

_Targets_ was loosely, very loosely, inspired by Charles Whitman's 1966 sniper massmurder in Austin Texas. There's an interesting subplot with Boris Karloff - it was his last film. Much of the film is from the viewpoint of the nice young fellow who snaps and goes on a shooting spree. It's not great, but it's interesting.
