“Now that it’s uncut, we can see how political this masterpiece is. We can also see the image-a blessed relief after decades of wretched Fear prints.” -Mike Clark, USA Today
Four tough drifters take on a suicidal mission-transporting explosives across Central American jungles-in this Henri Clouzot (Diabolique) thriller. One of the most nerve-wracking, exciting films ever made, Wages of Fear won the Grand Prize at Cannes in 1953. The film was cut for U.S. distribution in 1954, in part due to scenes that denounced crooked U.S. business interests in Latin America. We present Wages of Fear in its original, uncut version!
