Stanley Kubrick and possibly his most famous movie Full Metal Jacket is the story of some Marines and their time at basic followed by Vietnam. Unlike most movies tho this one takes a much more gritty and serious tone. That”s not to say the movie doesn’t have its humor to it or its enjoyable parts because it absolutely does.
As the first part of the movie goes on one trainee, pvt. pyle becomes more and more deranged as he is treated worse and worse by everyone since he is a huge screw up constantly getting everyone in trouble. By the end of basic he is actually a great marine, and insane. He actually kills a few people and himself in the bathroom in what can only be described as one of the more honest takes on PTSD in movie history.
As the movie moves on to Vietnam the movie will take on subjects such as prostitution, the brutalities of the Vietnam war and even the camaraderie among troops that was built. The movie is truly a masterpiece that should not be missed, best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
