Deliverance (1972)

Directed by
John Boorman

John Boorman's 1972 Oscar-nominated thriller Deliverance works on two levels. You can enjoy it simply as a very tough adventure thriller - where four Atlanta businessmen, including Jon Voight and led by macho Burt Reynolds (pictured) head off to Georgia for a canoeing holiday and all hell breaks loose when they encounter a bunch of psychotic hillbillies.

Or dig a little bit deeper and the film takes on a more metaphoric meaning - man's inhumanity to man, masculinity under threat, men groping each other in a meaningful manner... that kind of malarkey.

Either way it's a corker that you simply can't miss. And as for those duelling banjos...
