Fear And Desire (1953)
Stanley Kubrick's feature directing bow came with this once-thought-lost, little-seen indie that tracks the travails of a quartet of soldiers crash-landed deep within hostile territory. Their bid to make their way to safety is compromised by a local woman's stumbling upon their presence, as well as their discovery of an enemy general's nearby encampment. Grim allegory stars Paul Mazursky, Virginia Leith, Frank Silvera, Kenneth Harp, Stephen Coit. 60 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English; bonus short "The Seafarers" (1953).
