Virtually unseen since its theatrical premiere in 1953, Fear and Desire is the ambitious first feature film by legendary filmmaker Stanley Kubrick. An existential war film often compared with the director's Paths of Glory (1957) and Full Metal Jacket (1987), Fear and Desire follows a squad of soldiers who have crash-landed behind enemy lines and must work their way downriver to rejoin their unit.
