Full Metal Jacket 24 July 2018
Having already made an anti-war film with Paths of Glory in the 1950s, Stanley Kubrick set out to make a pure war movie with Full Metal Jacket, working with co-writers Michael Herr and Gustav Hasford, basing the screenplay on Hasfords novel The Short-Timers. Unlike contemporaries Francis Ford Coppola and Oliver Stone, Kubrick elected to film the entirety of the film in his adopted home of England, and the result is a both crisply photographed and dreamy version of Vietnam. The movie stars Matthew Modine as Private Joker, and R. Lee Ermey in an unforgettable role as Gunnery Sergeant Hartman.
116 minutes, Rated R.
