backtrack; Full metal jacket (1987)

Stanley Kubrick is one of several top-tier directors doing a movie on the american mega-trauma that is the Vietnam experience. Unusually enough, he concentrates just as much on the grueling preparations as on the actual warfare.

Taut and strong beginning, weaker and more disjointed end. Still in my book of numbness, despair, and survival.
