Deliverance (1972), John Boorman

A tense action tale mingled with a horror story, John Boorman’s 1972 Deliverance showcases – through the clash of urban sensibilities and rural stubbornness – the complexities and contradictions of defending nature (itself a magnificent foe here) against human greed. 956 more words

DELIVERANCE (1972 United States)

Nature, in the wild, can be violent. How appropriate that the setting should be the American South. Very few places in the U.S. are, or have been, as violent as redneck country. 565 more words

Film Reviews

Deliverance (1972)

Directed by John Boorman and based on the novel of the same name by James Dickey, Deliverance is another one of those essential 1970s films. Often considered among the first of the survival pictures, this 1972 movie can be interpreted a number of different ways but seems to carry very sure themes about civilization, survival and the evil that men do. 720 more words

Three by Lumet: Thoughts on NETWORK, THE FUGITIVE KIND, and THE VERDICT.

It’s not often that I watch films exclusively by one director in a short amount of time (I had a Buñuel binge in January), but last week I had a lapse into Lumet. 598 more words
