Product description

Product Description

Atlanta businessmen Ed (Jon Voight), Lewis (Burt Reynolds), Bobby (Ned Beatty), and Drew (Ronny Cox) take a weekend canoeing trip through the remote Appalachian wilderness, before the area is flooded for a new dam. Their inexperience and pride make them easy targets for hostile, inbred hillbillies, and the men all react differently to their situation as it becomes more perilous. Directed by John Boorman, the film serves as an allegory for America's experiences in Vietman.

From Amazon.co.uk

One of the key films of the 1970s, John Boorman's Deliverance is a nightmarish adaptation of poet-novelist James Dickey's book about various kinds of survival in modern America. The story concerns four Atlanta businessmen of various male stripe: Jon Voight's character is a reflective, civilized fellow; Burt Reynolds plays a strapping hunter-gatherer in urban clothes; Ned Beatty is a sweaty, weak-willed boy-man, and Ronny Cox essays a spirited, neighbourly type. Together they decide to answer the ancient call of men testing themselves against the elements and set out on a treacherous ride on the rapids of an Appalachian river. What they don't understand until it is too late is that they have ventured into Dickey's variation on the American underbelly, a wild, lawless, dangerous (and dangerously inbred) place isolated from the gloss of the late 20th century. In short order, the four men dig deep into their own suppressed primitiveness, defending themselves against armed cretins, facing the shock of real death on their carefully planned, death-defying adventure and then squarely facing the suspicions of authority over their concealed actions. Boorman, a master teller of stories about individuals on peculiarly mythical journeys, does a terrifying and beautiful job of revealing the complexity of private and collective character--the way one can never be the same after glimpsing the sharp-clawed survivor in one's soul. --Tom Keogh, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The past is wild. For all our thoughts on idylic formertimes Deliverance reminds us that the past was also a wild place. The movie juxtaposes man's slaughter of the unpaved land with local extremes of human inbreeding. Sometimes beautiful, sometimes lost in the forest unchecked. Nothing is simple.

"Sometimes you have to lose yourself before you can find anything" says Burt Reynolds near the beginning of their canoeing adventure. This is so true in the modern, follow, follow, follow age in which we exist. Breaking away is vital for a human human. Decisions in a wild state are curiously fulfilling. Confidence growing. Mind expanding. Murder.

What crimes are committed? Is the Law responsible? Two questions which still allow this movie to resonate with 2016. The 1970s hue on the look of the film does not impair its importance. It takes all sorts to make a world. We must not Privatise prisons: we will lose all contact with our sensibilities if we allow money to overrule help and assistance. Warders without conscience. Us.
