A canoeing expedition turns into a nightmare for four men after they meet two hillbillies and steer their canoes through turbulent rapids, in John Boorman's adaptation of the James Dickey novel.
Director: John Boorman
Four city men go for a weekend of river adventures in the Appalachians. The expedition turns into a nightmare after they meet two hillbillies and steer their canoes through turbulent rapids. James Dickey’s novel is the source of a terrifying cinematographic experience where Boorman debunks the myth of regeneration through violence so dear to the old west. As with earlier Boorman protagonists, Ed (John Voight) – in his quest for his own identity – lives out a bad dream.
