Excerpt: Thank you Criterion for releasing this version of Lord Of The Flies on blu ray. It is the story of how some young boys are stranded on a desert island by themselves and how they are reduced to savages. I was very happily surprised with the PQ as knowing this was made very inexpensively I was not expecting it to be this good. The image is sharp and well defined. A treat for your eyes. The audio is very clear also. Nice set of extras.
Excerpt: A few years ago, at my environmental protection job, I shared an office with one of the law enforcement officers in my unit and found myself listening to this co-worker's police scanner on a near daily basis. If you spend enough time overhearing transmissions on a police scanner, you might, as I did, eventually begin to thank the stars above for the presence of police officers and for the legal system in our society.
Excerpt: The film Lord of The Flies is a study of the human condition seen and experienced through the eyes of children from novel of same name by William Golding-1954. The twist being that these young male adolescents are marooned on an island dependent solely upon themselves for every decision made...good, bad, or indifferent setting a perfect climate for anarchy. That said, Lord of The Flies has good direction, a solid script and surprisingly good acting.
