Lord of the Flies

Directed by Peter Brook
United Kingdom, 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.
