In a new special edition, the most indelible adaptation of the classic novel, Lord of the Flies, is given the Criterion treatment and released on Blu-ray 28th August 2017 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

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.

  • New digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack
  • Satyajit Ray (1984), a feature documentary by Shyam Benegal that chronicles Ray's career and includes interviews with the filmmaker, family photographs, and extensive clips from his films
  • New interview with filmmaker Mira Nair

  • Excerpt from a 1981 French roundtable discussion with Ray, film critic Michel Ciment, and filmmaker Claude Sautet
