A first-rate retrospective documentary
4 August 2008 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

This compelling and illuminating retrospective documentary offers a revealing glimpse into the making of the landmark 1972 picture "Deliverance." The infamous rape sequence is discussed at great length: director John Boorman notes that the city guys raped the river and are in turn raped by these two mountain men who represent the violated forest, actor Bill McKinney points out that he did his best to protect fellow thespian Ned Beatty in that scene, and the often quoted "squeal like a pig" line was actually improvised for the TV version. Moreover, everyone praises Beatty for his devastating acting in that sequence. In addition, Ronny Cox talks about his character Drew's big breakdown scene and how he deliberately made Drew's sudden death enigmatic (Cox also was able to sling his arm over his head for the scene where the others discover Drew's corpse), the canoes were on rails for the scene where they crash into each other, and Burt Reynolds performed his own stunt when he gets tossed into the roaring rapids. Essential viewing for fans of the film.
