Under the direction of renowned experimental theatre director Peter Brook, the film version William Golding's legendary novel—about a swarm of young boys who devolve into chaos without adult supervision after crash-landing on a remote island during wartime—reveals the primitivism lurking beneath civilization. As raw and ragged as the lost boys at its center, Brook shot Lord of the Flies with a cinéma vérité, off-the-cuff naturalism, seeming to record a spontaneous eruption of its characters’ ids. The result is a rattling masterpiece, as provocative as its source material.
