Furious Sounds That Rocked Cinema Pt. 5 – Deliverance
Have you ever seen the Simpsons episode where they paddle through the swamps and then you hear cracking in the bushes and a banjo playing? Do you think that is a random thing? No it isn’t, just like the other gazillion references to the Banjo Duel in Deliverance. John Boorman‘s hixploitation survival movie adventure classic is as re-watchable as Laura Gemser in a bathtub, and the music is what stuck most with audiences. I love it because it is very subtle and not exploited into a huge reoccuring full-blown movie theme, and because it is original and opens up whole new levels of the characters and the environment.
