Lord of the Flies
Director's Suite (Peter Brook)

This classic movie once again arrives on DVD and tells the tale of a group of schoolboys who are stranded on a tropical island. The movie is adapted from the novel by William Golding that tells of manís darker and animalistic nature of what might happen when the walls and norms of society are broken down.

I remember reading this book while I was at school and seeing the original movie left me quite flabbergasted and even seeing the movie again so many years later, it still had the same effect.

As opposed to the 1990ís remake, the original movie version has a strong impact on the viewer due to the actors and how the movie was filmed. Creepy should also come into the picture.

The actors have been well chosen to represent their novel counterparts and what starts as children on paradise, soon erupts into animalistic emotions and deadly repercussions. Their plan is simple, have fun while they await to be saved, however from the hunt they are forced to kill a wild pig for food which then causes ripples through the group, until the devastating conclusion.

You will never look at pigs and conches the same way again.

A true cinematic classic!
