E1 Entertainment Lord Of The Flies Criterion Blu-Ray
E1 Entertainment Lord Of The Flies Criterion Blu-Ray. New, restored 4K digital film transfer.
Description & Features+
In the hands of the renowned experimental theater director Peter Brook, William Golding’s legendary novel on the primitivism lurking beneath civilization becomes a film as raw and ragged as the lost boys at its center.
Taking an innovative documentary-like approach, Brook shot Lord of the Flies with an off-the-cuff naturalism, seeming to record a spontaneous eruption of its characters’ ids. The result is a rattling masterpiece, as provocative as its source material.
