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

Deliverance (1972)


Deliverance remains an extremely tight and taut thriller, loaded with extremely tense sequences that put the heart straight into the mouth. Beneath that lies a film of contradictions and uncertainties. 79 more words
