Summary

  • PAPILLON

Papillon DVD [2014] Description

Franklin J Schaffners Papillon is quite possibly the definitive prison escape drama. Not as thrilling as The Great Escape, nor as emotionally cathartic as The Shawshank Redemption, its unflinching emphasis on the barbarism of civilised societies is nevertheless unparalleled. Significantly, the only characters to display any real kindness in this film are the social outcasts: the lepers and native Indians; everyone else has been corrupted and debased by the true villain, the penal system itself. Based on Henri Charrière s heavily fictionalised autobiography, the films timeless themes of mans insatiable desire for freedom and the indomitability of the human spirit are thankfully not dependent for their impact on the source materials veracity. Dalton Trumbos liberal-minded screenplay echoes the themes of his earlier script for Spartacus, and Schaffners innate gift for epic cinema (this was made just two years after his great war biography Patton) is fully equal to the task of realising it on screen. The directors painterly eye for widescreen composition and his careful pacing impart a gravitas to proceedings even during the films most squalid depictions of brutality, of which there are many emphasising the cheapness of human life among the convicts and their equally criminal prison guards in the penal colony of French Guiana. Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman form a remarkable screen pairing, with Hoffman outstanding as the pusillanimous Dega. McQueen magnificently overcomes his tough-guy persona in the extraordinary solitary confinement sequences as he is gradually reduced to a shambling, cockroach-eating wreck. Longtime collaborator Jerry Goldsmith, who had previously scored Schaffners Planet of the Apes and Patton, attained yet another career high with his music. On the DVD: The anamorphic widescreen print of the original Panavision 2. 35:1 ratio looks fine without being as stunning as some more modern prints; the Dolby 5.1 audio does however do great service to Jerry Goldsmiths score, which can also be selected separately from the Audio Setup menu as an isolated track (note that theres no music at all in the first 20 minutes of the film). The 12-minute Magnificent Rebel featurette was made at the time of the films release , and includes some fascinating footage of Henri Charrière touring the prison se t, reminiscing about his experiences and pontificating (Society does not want free men, society wants conditioned men).
