FULL METAL JACKET (1987)

Synopsis

In South Carolina, the young marines are training in a military boot camp under the command of its merciless sergeant. Eight weeks of shock at the end of which
Joker, Animal Mother, Gomer Pyle, Eightball, Cowboy and many others have been turned into machines that will obey without question: killing machines, war machines… Sent to Vietnam, the group are part of the Tet offensive.

 

Fierce action, relentless screenplay and dialogues peppered with black humour are the key ingredients of this film, adapted from Gustav Hasford’s novel. From the boot camp to the hellish war zone in the town of Hue, Full Metal Jacket remains a cinematic masterclass in which Stanley Kubrick proves his ability once again to tackle a new genre without putting himself that genre’s protocols.
