What Did Happen on the Cahulawassee River?
Four ordinary men in two canoes navigated a river they only know as a line on a map, taking on a wilderness they only think they understand.

Deliverence, based by James Dickey on his novel, surges with the urgency of masterful storytelling, like Georgia's Chattooga River along which it was shot. Equally masterful is the portrayal of each man's change of character under stress, harrowingly enacted by award winners Jon Voight, Burt Reynolds, Ned Beatty and Ronny Cox. Director John Boorman sets us on the knife-edge of survival - and draws us in with the irresistable force of a raging current.

"A harrowing film that can be appreciated on several levels.  Brian Webster, Apollo Movie Guide
"...the best film of Burt Reynolds' up and down career. And you'll never forget what happens to Ned Beatty.  Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"...a near masterpiece.  Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Boorman's violent and vivid parable brilliantly captures the sinister quality of the mountain country...  Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"...[a] gripping film.  Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews

Editor's Note
Director John Boorman's harrowing adaptation of James Dickey's best-selling novel is a nightmarish descent into backwoods Americana. When four unsuspecting urbanites head into the mountains of northern Georgia for a weekend canoe trip, they have no idea what's in store for them. The group's macho leader, Lewis Medlock (Burt Reynolds), is driven by Hemingway-esque notions of man's ability to conquer nature, while his three friends--Bobby Trippe (Ned Beatty), Drew Ballinger (Ronny Cox), and Ed Gentry (Jon Voight)--aren't so sure. As the men begin to navigate their way down the precarious rapids, they discover that nature isn't the only one out to get them. The eventual appearance of two menacing hillbillies turns the vacation into an all-out nightmare.

Photographed by the great Vilmos Zsigmond (MCCABE & MRS. MILLER, THE DEER HUNTER), DELIVERANCE is a compelling meditation on the dangers of masculine ritual. Reynolds dives headlong into the role that would make him a superstar, as does Beatty, whose legendary big-screen debut will never be forgotten. Boorman's thriller made two other lasting contributions to the pop-culture lexicon: the dueling-banjos sequence and the infamous line, "Squeal like a pig!"

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly
"...[Its] genre's one true masterpiece....DELIVERANCE intends to stir both soul and conscience..." -- Rating: A 03/10/1995 pp.74-5

Total Film
5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]hrillingly shot by Vilmos Zsigmond with a devastating immediacy....It's generally accepted that Burt gave his best performance under Boorman's direction..." 10/01/2007 p.131

USA Today
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Vilmos Zsigmond's canoeing catastrophe remains hypnotic..." 09/21/2007 p.11D

Ultimate DVD
5 stars out of 5 -- "It's a story that explores an interesting moral grey line, and as such this survivalist tale has never dated." 04/01/2008 p.75 10 of 10
It's got the most memorable opening on movie history -- "Duelling Banjos" speaks for itself after 30 years -- and one of the cinema's most horrifying rape scenes as well (most recently aped in Pulp Fiction). This tale of "city boys" taking a weekend trip by canoe down a soon-to-be-dammed river is about primitivism of both the all-talk and the real kind, and how desperate circumstances can make real men out of the weakest of wills. A landmark in movie history. - Christopher Null

Chicago Sun-Times 7 of 10
[James] Dickey, who wrote the original novel and the screenplay, lards this plot with a lot of significance -- universal, local, whatever happens to be on the market. He is clearly under the impression that he is telling us something about the nature of man, and particularly civilized man's ability to survive primitive challenges...the performances have a validity that transcends the film; Jon Voight, Burt Reynolds and, indeed, all the members of the cast are finely tuned and very good...It's possible to consider civilized men in a confrontation with the wilderness without throwing in rapes, cowboy-and-Indian stunts and pure exploitative sensationalism. That's why I was reminded of "The Worst Journey in the World," I suppose. It makes Dickey's odyssey seem absolutely adolescent. - Roger Ebert
