Lord of the Flies

Instrueret af Peter Brook
Storbritannien, 1963
Drama, Thriller


In the hands of renowned experimental theater director Peter Brook, William Golding’s legendary novel about the primitivism lurking beneath civilization becomes a film as raw and ragged as the lost boys at its center. The result is a rattling masterpiece, as provocative as its source material.

Lord of the Flies Instrueret af Peter Brook


The delight of the film is in seeing the children begin to mimic their wild environment, and in hearing their cries and voices become indistinguishable from the screeches of the birds and other animals on the island. Often considered a faithful, straightforward adaptation of the novel, Peter Brook’s film is a dark visual representation of human tragedy.

Brook’s Lord of the Flies explicitly recalls Luis Buñuel’s Los Olividados, and not just in the similarity of the subject matter. Both filmmakers embrace the illusion of vérité as a device to render expressionism with a sense of terrifying immediacy and palpability… Brook renders savagery with the despairing eye of a humanist, and with the irresolvable ambivalence of an artist.
