Full Metal Jacket is one of the most famous and influential movies of all times. Directed by Stanley Kubrick, his take on the Vietnam War is widely recognised as a magnificent statement on the horrors and pointlessness of war.
The film follows Private Davis and pudgy Private Lawrence as they endure the rigors of basic training. Though Lawrence takes a frightening detour, Davis graduates to the Marine Corps. The Corps sends him to Vietnam as a journalist. Here he covers and eventually participates in the bloody Battle of Hué.
