"Maybe there is a beast... maybe it's only us."

Lord of the Flies, directed by Peter Brook (1961)

I recently came across this amazing gallery of screenshots from Peter Brook's film adaptation of Lord of the Flies, and I had to share. If you remember reading the book and being simultaneously repulsed and fascinated, then you have to watch the film, it's intensely arresting both visually and emotionally.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, start here. Then read the whole book for free here. It will change your life and the way you think about the world.
