Film Series: Full Metal Jacket

1987. UK/USA. Dir: Stanley Kubrick. With Matthew Modine, Vincent D’Onofrio. 116 min.

After surviving boot camp under the profane tyranny of R. Lee Ermey’s drill sergeant, a group of Marines take to the turbulent streets of Vietnam. Kubrick’s half-hilarious, half-horrific view of the dehumanizing effects of war and combat training makes for dark visual poetry.
