A Man Out of Time




















                 Late 1960s Los Angeles ultimately provides a kind of purgatory that Walker needs to pick or bludgeon his way through. But although Walker is a very physical presence who metes out some form of violence to many of the characters he meets, as well as a whole range of inanimate objects, he is actually not directly responsible for any of the multiple deaths that pepper the film.
