Genres: Drama, War
Starring: Frank Silvera, Kenneth Harp, Paul Mazursky, Stephen Coit, and Virginia Leith
Director: Stanley Kubrick
Plot Sypnosis:

Kubrick's audacious and too-little-seen feature debut, made when he was a 24-year-old industry outsider, is the harrowing story of a group of soldiers who, after surviving a plane crash, must embarking on a surreal journey to escape from behind enemy lines. Premiering at the Venice Film Festival, Fear and Desire introduced the world to a filmmaker with a preternatural genius for image-making, while today its anti-war sentiments seem to look forward to future films like his Paths of Glory and Full Metal Jacket.

Restored in 4K in 2023 by Kino Lorber in collaboration with Library of Congress, from the 35mm original cut negative and the 35mm fine grain master.
