($39.95 Blu-ray; Criterion Collection)
Director Peter Brook’s 1963 take on author William Golding’s novel about a group of schoolchildren left to their own devices on an island is still as disturbing and compelling a statement on society, and certainly addresses the issue of youthful bullying. This classic still gets referenced in modern film reviews and marketing material (eg “Hunger Games is the new Lord of the Flies!”) so what better way to see it than sparkling 4K digital transfer on Blu-ray? The extras are plentiful: commentary track, deleted scene, audio of Golding reading from the book, TV show and documentary excerpts, and much more.
