      You stole the words right out of my mouth. Brilliant film.

    It's great, the duelling banjo scene... now trying to spot which shots had an extra arm from a man hiding behind the banjo player, as described by Boorman. The actor was a great face, but couldn't play, so they had a musician behind him and an extra sleeve, so that he could be the left hand making the fret moves.

      Great anecdotes about Deliverance . Stuck pretty close to the book too . Boorman will be remembered for that one film & for Excalibur as the definative takes on two complete opposite countries legends .

        Hell in the Pacific for its raw, uncompromising power is Boorman's best, IMO. Excalibur had its moments but my overwhelming feeling on leaving the cinema was one of disappointment.

            Great filmmaker. I have always loved Point Blank, Hell in the Pacific and Deliverance. It’s a little sad to see such a vibrant and fertile mind now in old age.

              Old age happens to most of us, if we’re lucky

              There’s not a lot you can do about it.

                Not criticizing old age, just saying it’s sad that the exciting filmmaker I grew up admiring has now in a different stage of his life.
