Fear and Desire

This was Stanley Kubrick’s first feature film, and in later years he tried to remove this from circulation as he considered it “a bumbling amateur film exercise.”

It was certainly amateurish, and obviously made on a small budget (most of the funds came from his uncle). The production crew consisted of fifteen people including the five actors, and was shot as cheaply as possible, but in the end it lost money. The editing (by Kubrick) was at times lightning fast, some shots would only last a split second. The acting was not too bad overall, but the dialogue was a bit strange at times.

This is not essential watching, and I would only recommend this to Kubrick fans really.
