Deliverance Special Edition Blurb ??.??.??

I typed this out for you guys and gals, and hit the highlights in red. I imagine this movie will get the two disc treatment. Nothing has been announced, but the commentary is finished. Enjoy

From Last weeks Home Media Retailing

Warner Features Director John Boorman in Upcoming Noir Set
By Fred Topel

Filmmaker John Boorman isn’t keen on the trend in Hollywood to release extended versions of movies on DVD. “Everything I’ve cut out of a film, it better stay cut out.” he said.

Boorman, a 40-year Hollywood veteran, has been hard at work supervising DVD’s of his classic films over the past few months.

With Point Blank making its DVD debut in Warner Home Video’s Film Noir Collection Vol. 2 and a special edition of Deliverance in the works, Boorman has recorded commentary tracks, approved transfers, and revisited archival materials.
“The DVD revolution has changed films and the way people perceive them tremendously, allowing them to connect with films and having that kind of intimate relationship with the director,” he said.

Looking back at the 1967 documentaries included on the Point Bland DVD made Booman a bit self-conscience.

“ I have to look at myself as a 32-year old,” he said.

Still he is glad those features exist because he can’t promise to include every detail in his newly recorded commentary.

“It’s very difficult to revisit films you made 30 years ago, just trying to remember,” he said.

Though he claims memory difficulties, Boorman remembers a lot about Point Blank Star Lee Marvin.

“We met a number of times, and he talked a lot about his life,” he said. “Essentially, what I did was make a film about him. He was dehumanized by his war experiences, and so this character he played was a dehumanized character who’s trying to find his way back into humanity.

“Lee had this belief that America could only express itself throught violence, and we kind of integrate that into this. He was very taken with the way in which I got inside his mind and his problems, and the film was wrought out of that relationship.”

For the upcoming Deliverance DVD, Boorman remembered some important sticking points that he wasn’t afraid to share in his audio track.

“I’m going to do a commentary in which I’m going to make sure I criticize Warner Bros. for their lack of support when I made it,” he said days before the commentary session.

Whether the studio allows such comments to remain on their DVD remains to be seen, Boorman concedes.

“Of course, they will always have the option of cutting out what I say.” he said.

Point Blank streets July 7. No release date is set for Deliverance Special Edition.

A Deliverance SE would be most welcome, but I think the Boorman film I'd most like to have his commentary on would be Emerald Forest. At any rate, getting the commentary recorded for posterity on these older releases is one of the best results of the DVD revolution.

I thought it was forum law that any mention of Zardoz requires a pic?

I'd eat this up and I'm already in the mood for it. I've been on the river 5 of the last 7 days in a canoe.

Deliverance is one hell of a good film. I've always thought of it as almost a horror film on several levels. Certainly one of Jon Voight's best performances.

I would love a full bore Excalibur SE.

i could see that happening. I think Warner is doing a good job of giving us new to dvd and re-releases that merit a re-release...i think Excalibur is right up the alley

SOunds good. I've been holding off on the current release in hopes of a new SE coming soon.

Ned Beatty squealing like a pig, Burt Reynolds wearing a vest made out of and old tire, double (triple?) jointed Ronny Cox...what could be better?

Deliverance is a great movie. I'd spring for a new edition of it.

You realize that if "Deliverance" was a Universal property, it would be called Deliverance: The Unrated Backwoods Buggery Edition.

Deliverance SE

Does anybody think Warner Bros. will release a 35 year anniversary addition of Deliverance in 2007? I certainly hope they do. The previous dvd is pretty bare and needs extras and a new transfer.

I'm not sure, but you should probably add a question mark to the thread title, so people don't think you're announcing news.

HDNet Movies is premiering 'Deliverance' next month - I would assume the HiDef dvd edition might follow in the coming months after that.

I can't imagine the studio would pass up the oppurtunity to release the Squeal Like a Pig Edition.
