7th Art: Deliverance (1972)

Deliverance is a 1972 guy flick directed by John Boorman and starring John Voight and Burt Reynolds at their best. It successfully explores an age old moral dilemma: is taking justice into one's own hands justified when it's known that institutional justice will fail? The movie shows how survival shape choices and painful consequences are unavoidable. It also gives us the classic "Dueling Banjos" scene, performed by Eric Weissberg and Steve Mandel.
