Deliverance in particular made me so angry. I had never watched it until I decided to write this article, and I discovered there’s nothing funny about what happens in Deliverance. In fact, it’s pretty damn hard to watch. Now when I think about those Deliverance jokes, all I can think about is how these people are making jokes out of someone else’s pain and suffering.

It's a while since I watched it, but I don't remember thinking that Deliverance downplayed male rape. That film terrified me! The Deliverance "jokes" are insensitive, but is that the fault of the makers of that film?

(I agree with his analysis of Pulp Fiction though.)
