  1. Amandio Filipe Moura's rating of the film Lord of the Flies

    A film that shows the true conduct of the bare human nature

  2. carlosleite's rating of the film Lord of the Flies

    "Because the rules are the only thing we've got" 3,5

  3. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Lord of the Flies

    Based upon the novel about a schoolboy class stranded on an island with all the adults killed. It is filmed in style as a documentary with only natural sound and un-actors making it feel like a very real film, but it also can't hide the fact that it feels like a staged play sometimes.

  4. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Lord of the Flies

    3-4. I think there could have been more individual character development than there appears to be here, but the conflict is palpable (especially by the end, when Ralph's being chased down). I didn't think the direction had much presence, initially, but eventually the images become photographically eye-catching, almost every subject popping off the screen. Not perfect, but delivered on its reputation.

  10. FISCHER's rating of the film Lord of the Flies

    Une stupéfiante allégorie qui met magistralement en images, les errements de la nature humaine abandonnée à elle-même, à ses pulsions primaires... www.cinefiches.com

  11. Bruna de Moura's rating of the film Lord of the Flies

    better than the most recent version but it is still bad. nothing can be compared to the book imo

  12. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Lord of the Flies

    With Golding's source novel and beautiful high-contrast photography, it's impossible to be boring. It does hit a wall, though, with its child actors: it's much easier for children to carry a serious drama on the page than it is on screen—though it can be done—and these kids talk and act like adults are feeding them lines one at a time. But in the dark setpieces, where no talk is called for, the energy gets loose.

  13. Timmy93's rating of the film Lord of the Flies

    Barbarism trumps civilization in this tale of corrupted youth. Film boasts stylish elements, while stays faithful to the original source.

  14. James Mackin's rating of the film Lord of the Flies

    Oh shit, this was a tough one. This hit hard.

  15. TZUHSIEN TANG's rating of the film Lord of the Flies

  16. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Lord of the Flies

    Many films portray subjects such as the collapse of society, primal instinct, madness, and violence, but few I’ve seen have truly tapped into the heart of darkness like this one does. There’s a scene partway through the film that shows a dance by a fire and a murder, and it’s one of the most unnerving and terrifying scenes of violence and insanity I’ve seen on film. Dark, brutal masterpiece.

  17. F-BOMB's rating of the film Lord of the Flies

    The child actors do the novel a surprisingly strong service, but the editing dates the film and we find ourselves forced to write it off as another (overall unsuccessful) eccentricity of 1960s cinema.

  18. Scorpio Velvet's rating of the film Lord of the Flies

    Good classic adaptation of Golding's novel, this was well shot & the children's portrayal on survival and primitivism while stranded seemed to had great storytelling.

  19. José Carlos Carazo's rating of the film Lord of the Flies

    Los bárbaros...también fueron niños.

  20. Laura Suffield's rating of the film Lord of the Flies

    Curiously, I quite liked it. I don't agree that the problem is the woodenness of the acting (people really did speak like that in Britain in the 1950s: just listen to the radio or watch the tv of that period). The woodenness is in the directing. But it still retains something of the book.

  21. su r's rating of the film Lord of the Flies

    the book is brilliant, bu this movie.. i dont know.

  22. narcekirdegi's rating of the film Lord of the Flies

    worths to watch but still "too much zipped" considering the book.

  23. Mehmet Ali Karar's rating of the film Lord of the Flies

  24. Mymosh the Selfbegotten's rating of the film Lord of the Flies

    The children, temporarily unsupervised after a plain crash, are just a few more murders away from recreating civilization. The adults, as usual, are reactionary and put an end to everything just as the kids are at their most creative. This film might as well have been a documentary.
