General information

Rated 4 out of 5

“Deliverance” is a gripping 1972 movie directed by John Boorman and based on the novel of the same name by James Dickey. It follows four friends, played by Jon Voight, Burt Reynolds, Ned Beatty, and Ronny Cox, who embark on a canoe trip down a remote river in Georgia, only to encounter a series of harrowing events that threaten their lives.

The film is an intense and thought-provoking exploration of the themes of masculinity, nature, and survival. The cinematography is stunning, capturing the beauty and danger of the natural surroundings, while the music score, featuring the haunting tune “Dueling Banjos,” adds to the film’s tension and atmosphere.

The performances by the lead actors are outstanding, particularly Voight and Reynolds, who both deliver nuanced and powerful portrayals of men grappling with fear, violence, and their own identities. Beatty and Cox also turn in strong performances, adding depth to their respective characters.

However, it is important to note that the movie also contains scenes of graphic violence and sexual assault, which may be triggering for some viewers. These scenes serve to underscore the brutality of the events that unfold and the film’s themes, but they may not be suitable for all audiences.

Overall, “Deliverance” is a classic movie that remains as impactful and relevant today as it was over four decades ago. Its exploration of the human psyche and the primal nature of survival in the face of adversity make it a must-see for fans of thought-provoking cinema.
