Entertainment Reviews:

Sight and Sound - 12/01/2002
"...Brook's vérité approach allows the full force of Golding's allegory to assert itself..."
Uncut - 09/01/2007
4 stars out of 5 -- "[R]endered oddly, devastatingly convincing here....This looks starker, stranger and better than ever."
Ultimate DVD - 08/01/2007
5 stars out of 5 -- "Superb....A role model for successful novel adaptations."
Sight and Sound - 03/01/2008
"[T]he film had a roughness and authenticity that a polished Hollywood version would surely have lacked."

Production Notes:

  • Theatrical Release: August 13, 1963.
  • One of the first films to be shot using a hand-held camera and zoom telephoto camera lens.
  • The film was shot on Vieques, an island off the coast of Puerto Rico that was used by the U.S. Navy as a controversial training facility for over 60 years.
  • In 1996, BBC director Richard Dale produced a 50-minute reunion documentary called TIME FLIES, in which the now-adult cast members revisited the island 35 years after filming.
