FULL METAL JACKET

1987, STANLEY KUBRICK, USA, 116 MIN. WITH MATTHEW MODINE, R. LEE ERMEY.

«Profoundly moving, this is the most tightly crafted Kubrick film since DR. STRANGELOVE, as well as the most horrific — the first section alone accomplishes most of what THE SHINING failed to do.» — Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

In his next-to-last film, Kubrick trains his sights on the Vietnam War with a sardonic rigor that counterpoints the more romantic visions of Cimino, Coppola, and Stone. The film’s two-part structure begins with the observer-hero Pvt. Joker (Modine) in the brutalizing regime of the Parris Island boot camp, featuring a legendary performance by Ermey as the mother of all drill sergeants. In the second part, Joker arrives in 'Nam as a non-combatant correspondent but gets drawn into the infernal carnival of the 1968 Tet Offensive, culminating in a harrowing showdown with a sniper amid the ruins of Hue. 35mm.
