A fascinating and informative making of documentary
7 July 2008 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

This neat little vintage documentary offers an intriguing glimpse into the making of John Boorman's landmark 1972 classic "Deliverance." Among the subjects addressed are the arduous and exacting shooting of the picture on location in Georgia (the film equipment had to be brought up into the mountains with jeeps!), the four principal cast members' remarkable physical commitment to their roles (they all put themselves in constant danger for the sake of making the movie as realistic as possible), Jon Voight insisting on performing his own stunt for the famous cliff climbing set piece, Burt Reynolds learning archery for his part, author James Dickey's experience playing the sheriff in the film, and the turbulent relationship between Dickey and director Boorman. Moreover, both Dickey and Boorman make some interesting and insightful comments about the project. My sole complaint is that this documentary is way too short at a mere ten minutes along. That criticism aside, this nifty featurette is still essential viewing for fans of "Deliverance."
