  5. 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

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

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

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

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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

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

    Los bárbaros...también fueron niños.

  15. 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.

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

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

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

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

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

  19. 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.

  20. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Lord of the Flies

    Una película sobre las dinámicas de poder y sobre lo que pasaría si la humanidad se replanteara denuevo. La Historia (de la violencia) es cíclica. De la misma forma, la naturaleza humana es agresiva, plantea dominación y estereotipos, como "Piggy", quien ni su propio amigo no deja de llamarlo así. La coacción como medio que rompe la ley pública. El personaje más atractivo: el neutral o de ideas no preconcebidas.

  21. robin's rating of the film Lord of the Flies

    Best of of key quotations and naive execution of major themes and symbols of the novel, but what it lacks in atmosphere, emotion and gradual progression of the storyline, it makes up for with beautiful photography, title design and casting of the boys, who although wooden are genuine enough. Just read the book first.

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

    Beautiful imagery in this film. I actually think it would help to read the book first before you see this film because this movie does kind of expect you to know the story because the story sometimes leaves it up to you to understand what is going on.

  23. emichan's rating of the film Lord of the Flies

    A worthy adaptation of the book
