Plot Summary

Expressionistic noir photography suffuses David Lean’s Oliver Twist with a nightmarish quality, fitting its bleak, industrial setting. In Dickens’ classic tale, an orphan wends his way from cruel apprenticeship to den of thieves in search of a true home. Here Alec Guinness is the quintessential Fagin, his controversial performance fully restored in Criterion’s digital transfer.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It is safe to proclaim that it is merely a superb piece of motion picture art and, beyond doubt, one of the finest screen translations of a literary classic ever made. – Bosley Crowther, New York Times, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: From every angle this is a superb achievement. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Alec Guinness as the master pickpocket Fagin is the high point of David Lean's 1948 version of the Dickens classic. – Don Druker, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Perhaps marginally less beguiling than Great Expectations, but still a moving and enjoyable account of Dickens' masterpiece. – Time Out, Nov 6, 2007
