Rated R · 109 minutes · 1972

John Boorman's 1972 film of the James Dickey novel has a beautiful visual style that balances the film's machismo message. Four men on a canoe trip down one of Georgia's last unspoiled rivers meet violence and death; Burt Reynolds is the compulsive outdoorsman and Jon Voight is the quiet city man out of his element. The best scene occurs early, when one of the men plays a strange banjo-guitar duet with a half-witted backwoods boy. Be sure to be on time.
