"We killed a man, Drew. Shot him in the back. A mountain man. A cracker."

Based on James Dickey's best-selling 1970 novel, John Boorman's Deliverance is a fateful tour of rugged Georgia terrain which functions as a potent reminder that we can always be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Shot on a shoestring budget on location in northern Georgia, Boorman's most arresting picture ... read more

This is the sort of film you watch and it ends up making you feel sick because it doesn't really go anywhere and it starts to bore you. The premise is ok and I think it would work well in the book, but there isn't much there to keep you interested in the film. It's an interesting insight into the actors who star in the film. Everyone's favourite John Voight gives a fantastic performance and it's c... read more

Me already NOT being a fan of the woods..this movie didn't help hahaha. I enjoyed the realistic-ness to the film. No music, actors did most of their stunts, shaky camera, non complex, yet realistic dialogue. It was well done in my opinion. Although I really didn't like the [spoiler] rape scene, of curse, who would, but it was disturbing and I had to fast foward[/spoiler], it was still a killer fil... read more

Description: Adapted from James Dickey's popular novel, John Boorman's 1972 movie recounts the grueling psychological and physical journey taken by four city slickers down a river in the backwoods of Georgia. At the behest of Iron John-esque Lewis (Burt Reynolds), the less adventuresome Ed (Jon Voight), Bobby (Ned Beatty), and Drew (Ronny Cox) agree to canoe down an uncharted section of the river before a dam project ruins the region. After warnings from the grimy, impoverished locals, and Drew's tuneful yet ominous "Dueling Banjos" encounter with a mute inbred boy, the four men embark on their trip, exulting in the beauty of natur ...

" Notes: To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and maybe I should check it out again at some point. In fact, I remember it quite well the first time I watched it. Indeed, I kept hearing some really good things about this flick so I was really eager to check it out and I had some rather high expectations about the damned thing. Well, eventually, even though I though it was indeed pretty good, I can’t say I was really blown away and, to be honest, I thought it was actual"

500 Essential Cult Movies (502 movies items)

" Adapted from the book by poet and novelist James Dickey, Deliverance is, at its heart, the story of four urban archetypes playing at being hunter-gatherers for a weekend who discover that, when faced with a real threat by lawless rural people, they have to dig deep down and release their own suppressed primal instincts to survive. This isn't for the fainthearted, as it taps directly into the unfortunate consequences when modern civilization clashes with an older, more nature-bound way of life,"

"First viewing - July 29th Well now I understand why this film is well-respected. The cast is excellent, the story is well-handled (grey characters! explorations of character choices that are logical!), and it's pretty intense for most of the run-time. The last quarter of the film kinda drags along through its conclusion though, which does keep up the realistic approach but I found it underwhelming. And while I can easily add my name to those who respect the film, I wouldn't say I fell in love w"
