Full Metal Jacket (Kubrick)

Full Metal Jacket

Stanley Kubrick

Young recruits are indoctrinated by their drill instructor (R. Lee Ermey) then shipped to Vietnam where they will experience a descent into hell. “What Kubrick shows is the function of soldiers in the annihilation of the enemy through the negation of their own egos.” (S. Kaganski).
