Lurie makes the same point as Peckinpah, namely that, when survival is threatened, even the most civilised types have a primal capacity for violence. But, 40 years on, the shock factor has gone.
I believe that not all are aware of that, for even in a world such as this the naive and ignorant still exist. It does not hurt to show the dark side of a person's nature. Brilliant film!
