Early Kubrick provides a tantalising glimpse at the greatness to come
Pretentious and muddled, Fear and Desire would surely have faded into history if it wasn't the little-seen 1953 directorial debut from Stanley Kubrick. Judged on those terms this hour-long war drama is a fascinating curiosity that teases viewers with glimpses of the greatness he would eventually achieve. This Blu-ray serves up an impressive AVC 1.37:1 1080p restoration, alongside three of the filmmakers' other short films and an informative interview with Kubrick scholar Bill Krohn.
