Full Metal Jacket
director:
Stanley Kubrick
cast:
Matthew Modine, Vincent D’Onofrio

A harrowing, beautiful, and characteristically eccentric film about Vietnam, Full Metal Jacket starts in a boot camp where the recruits are humiliated, beaten, exhausted...It’s all for a combat mission in Hué, which, as seen, by Kubrick, is both a specific place and a seat of judgment for all that has gone before.

Cosponsored with the Dept of History and the Society for Humanities.
