BURT REYNOLDS - THE LAST MOVIE STAR
Double Feature!
DELIVERANCE / WHITE LIGHTNING
DELIVERANCE
1972, Warner Bros., 109 min, USA, Dir: John Boorman

Director John Boorman fashions an indescribable odyssey of unexpected violence, endurance and transcendence as Jon Voight, Burt Reynolds, Ronny Cox and Ned Beatty are stalked by a scruffy gang of backwoods neanderthals. The cinematography by Vilmos Zsigmond (MCCABE & MRS. MILLER, THE LONG GOODBYE, and winner of the 1998 ASC Lifetime Achievement Award) perfectly evokes an atmosphere of stark, pastoral beauty and mounting terror from novelist James Dickey’s pitch perfect screenplay.


35 mm!

WHITE LIGHTNING
1973, Park Circus/MGM, 101 min, USA, Dir: Joseph Sargent

In prison for running bootleg liquor, Gator McKlusky (Burt Reynolds) is offered a deal by the feds - freedom in exchange for his assistance capturing key figures in the moonshine operation. Since suspected ring leader Sheriff J.C. Connors (Reynolds’ DELIVERANCE costar Ned Beatty) is also the man who killed Gator's little brother, Gator agrees to help and get revenge. With a solid cast (including Bo Hopkins, Diane Ladd and an uncredited Laura Dern) and a terrific climactic car chase, this is one of the best Southern-set action films of the 1970s.


Screening format: DCP (DELIVERANCE), 35mm (WHITE LIGHTNING)
