Oliver Twist

Oliver Twist

Directed by David Lean • 1948 • United Kingdom

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.
