      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.
