Full Metal Jacket

Critics' Rating:
Release Year:
MPAA Rating: R
Genre: Historical Drama, War
Director: Stanley Kubrick

Stanley Kubrick's take on the Vietnam War follows smart-aleck Private Davis, quickly christened ''Joker'' by his foul-mouthed drill sergeant, and pudgy Private Lawrence, nicknamed ''Gomer Pyle,'' as they endure the rigors of basic training. Though Pyle takes a frightening detour, Joker graduates to the Marine Corps and is sent to Vietnam as a journalist, covering -- and eventually participating in -- the bloody Battle of Hué.
