Lord Of The Flies - The Criterion Collection
  • Description

    THE MOST INDELIBLE ADAPTATION OF THE CLASSIC NOVEL, IN A NEW SPECIAL EDITION!

    In the hands of the renowned experimental theatre 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 centre. 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.

    Special Features:

    • New, restored 4K digital film transfer, supervised by cameraman and editor Gerald Feil, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack
    • Audio commentary featuring director Peter Brook, producer Lewis Allen, director of photography Tom Hollyman, and Feil
    • Audio recordings of William Golding reading from his novel Lord of the Flies, accompanied by the corresponding scenes from the film
    • Deleted scene, with optional commentary and reading by Golding
    • Interview with Brook from 2008
    • Collection of behind-the-scenes material, featuring home movies, screen tests, outtakes, and stills
    • New interview with Feil
    • Excerpt from Feil’s 1972 documentary The Empty Space, showcasing Brook’s theatre methods
    • Something Queer in the Warehouse, a piece composed of never-before-seen footage shot by the boy actors during production, with new voice-over by Tom Gaman, who played Simon
    • Trailer
    • PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by film critic Geoffrey Macnab and an excerpt from
    • Brook’s book The Shifting Point
