In order of merit:


1.Deliverance (1972) ****
2.Point Blank (1967) ***1/2
3.The General (1998) ***1/2
4.Excalibur (1981) ***
5.Hell in the Pacific (1968) ***
6.Hope and Glory (1987) ***
7.The Emerald Forest (1985) ***
8.Beyond Rangoon (1995) ***
9.Leo the Last (1970) **
10.Where the Heart Is (1990) **
11.Zardoz (1974) *1/2
12.Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977) *1/2


I've yet to watch THE TAILOR OF PANAMA (2001) which I have on VHS.

Boorman is a talented film-maker (whom I was lucky to talk to, ever so briefly, during last year's Venice Film Festival) but who is sometimes prone to pretentiousness: when he puts his mind to it, though, the results are brilliant as in POINT BLANK...but when his ego gets the better of him, we're saddled with an incomprehensible bore like ZARDOZ! And don't get me started on EXORCIST II...Posted Image!

Deliverance (1972) The General (1998) Point Blank (1967) Seen the above, in order of preference (though "Point Blank" was REALLY long ago. . .based on my favorite author, Donald E. Westlake aka Richard Stark's novel).
