    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Book browsing in an op-shop the other day I came across a rather battered hardback copy of Deliverance.

    there's some scientists off on safari in search of giant wasps -cue endless trudging with all the heavy lifting done by porters ( there is one shot of a white guy trudging behind the porters with a whip! these guys are being paid arent they? or is this guy gonna tame some lions?) anyway there is also a woman who spends an ungodly amount of time pressing herself against the lead dude for comfort...which after a time I found quite amusing. but really its terribly boring...simply put - not enough wasps
