Zavvi - The Home of Pop CultureTHE MOST INDELIBLE ADAPTATION OF THE CLASSIC NOVEL, IN A NEW SPECIAL EDITION!In the hands of the renowned experimental theatre director PETER BROOK, William Golding's legendary novel on the primitivism lurking beneath civilization becomes a film as raw and ragged as the lost boys at its centre. Taking an innovative documentary-like approach, Brook shot Lord of the Flies with an 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.Special Features:New, restored 4K digital film transfer, supervised by cameraman and editor Gerald Feil, with uncompressed monaural soundtrackAudio commentary featuring director Peter Brook, producer Lewis Allen, director of photography Tom Hollyman, and FeilAudio recordings of William Golding reading from his novel Lord of the Flies, accompanied by the corresponding scenes from the filmDeleted scene, with optional commentary and reading by GoldingInterview with Brook from 2008Collection of behind-the-scenes material, featuring home movies, screen tests, outtakes, and stillsNew interview with FeilExcerpt from Feil's 1972 documentary The Empty Space, showcasing Brook's theatre methodsSomething Queer in the Warehouse, a piece composed of never-before-seen footage shot by the boy actors during production, with new voice-over by Tom Gaman, who played SimonTrailerPLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by film critic Geoffrey Macnab and an excerpt fromBrook's book The Shifting Point
