Fear and Desire

Disutradarai oleh Stanley Kubrick
Amerika Serikat, 1953


Karya debut dari Kubrick ini berkisah tentang perang antara dua kekuatan. Di tengah-tengah konflik, sebuah pesawat yang membawa empat tentara jatuh di belakang garis musuh. Sejak saat itu, hanya ada dua pilihan: membunuh atau dibunuh.

Pendapat kami

Famously, Stanley Kubrick spent decades suppressing this, his first feature. We think he was too hard on himself: Fear and Desire is a rough B-movie spiked with inspired ideas and imagery, and its long sought-after availability allows us to trace the origins of the master.

Ulasan Kritikus

The cuts are severe, alienating, disruptive, confusing and jarring the narrative flow like hiccups. The wartime allegory is forced, the soldiers are a group of penny-ante philosophers, and the drama smothered in atmosphere. The script is laden, wet with languorous monologues dragged out of the post-synchronized voices. And yet, there is more to love here than in many of Kubrick’s other early films.

Kubrick, an accomplished photographer since his teens, uses the woodland locations to atmospheric effect. (He shot and edited the film himself.) And especially in the scenes designed to convey the soldiers’ growing inner turmoil, the direction has a crude, off-kilter energy.

It does Kubrick, one of the medium’s entrenched high artists, no favors to overrate his debut. While the surrealist, pseudo-Buñuelian setup of Fear and Desire as a barebones, modernist imagining of a war film immediately impresses itself in its novelty, the constraints of Kubrick’s $50,000 micro budget and sparse, skeleton crew are all too apparent as the film begins to wander, adrift like its own marooned GIs.
