Seamlessly interweaving archival war footage and a fictional narrative, this immersive account by STUART COOPER of one twenty-year-old’s journey from basic training to the front lines of D-Day brings to life all the terrors and isolation of war with jolting authenticity. Overlord, impressionistically shot by Stanley Kubrick’s long-time cinematographer JOHN ALCOTT, is both a document of World War II and a dreamlike meditation on human smallness in a large, incomprehensible machine.

Special Features:

  • Restored high-definition digital transfer, supervised and approved by director Stuart Cooper, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack
  • Audio commentary featuring Cooper and actor Brian Stirner
  • Mining the Archive, a 2007 video piece featuring archivists from London’s Imperial War Museum detailing the footage used in the film
  • Capa Influences Cooper, a 2007 photo essay featuring Cooper on photographer Robert Capa
  • Cameramen at War, the British Ministry of Information’s 1943 film tribute to newsreel and service film unit cameramen
  • A Test of Violence, Cooper’s 1969 short film about the Spanish artist Juan Genovés
  • Germany Calling, a 1941 Ministry of Information propaganda film, clips of which appear in Overlord
  • Excerpts from the journals of two D-day soldiers, read by Stirner
  • Trailer
  • PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Kent Jones, a short history of the Imperial War Museum, and excerpts from the Overlord novelization by Cooper and Christopher Hudson
