Boorman, John

Tagged: Film | Author

(1933-    ) UK film director, famous for movies like Point Blank (1967) and Deliverance (1972), who novelized his own Zardoz (1974) as Zardoz (1974) with Bill Stair (1939-1991). As a director he has also ventured into fantasy with Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977) and the Arthurian Excalibur (1981). The Tailor of Panama (2001), based on John Le Carré's novel The Tailor of Panama (1996), is arguably borderline sf – "political science fiction", as Le Carré has called some of his work. [JC/GS]
