Drama (1953) 72 minutes ~ Black & White
A fictitious war in an unidentified country provides the setting for this Drama. Four soldiers survive the crash-landing of their plane to find themselves in a forest six miles behind enemy lines. The group, led by Lt. Corby, has a plan: They'll make their way to a nearby river, build a raft, and then, under cover of night, float back to friendly territory. Their plans for getting back safely are sidetracked by a young woman who stumbles across them as they hide in the woods, and by the nearby presence of an enemy general who one member of the group is determined to kill.
Fear and Desire was Stanley Kubrick's first film, which he completed using his own funds at the age of 24. Not only did Kubrick co-produce and direct the film, he also photographed and edited it as well. Though the film is on the whole a pretentious and amateurish failure, the seeds of future promise are already evident.
