Description

Fear and Desire on Blu-ray

Fear and Desire is the ambitious first feature film by legendary filmmaker Stanley Kubrick (Paths of Glory, Full Metal Jacket). In this existential drama which has the feeling of a waking dream rather than a conventional war film four soldiers return to their senses after crash-landing in a forest behind enemy lines. Blindly navigating their way back to their unit, they attack an isolated cabin occupied by enemy soldiers, then apprehend a peasant woman who is tormented by the deranged young soldier assigned to guard her. On the verge of freedom, they discover an outpost of enemy officers, and must decide whether to slip silently past or stage a violent confrontation with their doppelgangers. Upon It's initial release, Kubrick was stung by negative audience reactions and immediately decided to tone down the philosophical aspects of the film. These edits made the film less of a metaphysical experience and more of a conventional war film. For decades, this 62-minute version was all that existed of Fear and Desire, until Library of Congress came into possession of a 35mm element of the original 70-minute cut, which has not been seen since it's interrupted theatrical run in 1953. Now, we can finally see Fear and Desire as the it was first released, and witness the blossoming of a 23-year-old cinematic genius.
