Point blank (1967)

»You did die at Alcatraz that day«

A tense, abrupt introduction leads to an existential revenge drama where reasons are gradually muddled and everyone appears to keep going through their uneasy motions just for the empty sake of it. Nervously threatening, sometimes intentionally and suggestively confusing, this bleak thriller is as brutally and straightforwardly effective as its seemingly almost emotionless main character.

Nothing revolutionary, but all is very well done in a cold, sparse and raw way. In my book.
