"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

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

The story is insanely simple: 4 men call it a weekend and go down Cahulawassee River to witness the beauty that is soon to be eradicated for themselves. It has the typical; An overly enthusiastic, 50/50 poetic guy, one 'normal' guy, one a pessimistic, mild guy and one who never shuts up, the vocal of the group - the comic relief, in short. If this were an action film then each of these guys would'... 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 ...

"12.4. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Kuten niin monen muunkin ihailemani 70-luvun amerikkalaiselokuvan kohdalla, iskee fyysiseksi yltävä raaka voima yhä, kuin ensikertaa. Sivistyneinkin ihminen on hyvin kykeneväinen barbarismiin, kun kokee itsensä uhatuksi keskellä ei-mitään ja ainoa ulkoinen järjen ääni ei enää juttele. Kyse on vain siitä, kuinka hyvin ja äänekkäästi tekonsa ja päätöksensä perustelee. Luonto on armoton luonnostaan, ihminen monin tavoin vain paska huolimatta tar"

" 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"

"6.12. 2020 Four men are are enjoying a canoe trip until a shocking incident involving aggressive mountain men changes their life forever. "Deliverance" is certainly an exciting adventure film and also some kind of a thriller, but it is also a study of collision between civilized and primitive culture. Threatening and surprising situations in uncharted environment may turn even civilized men into savages. The film also has a sensible environmental message: the main characters decide to take a ca"
