A look back at the AFI's 1998 and 2007 "100 Years, 100 Movies" Top 100 Lists…..and a lot more!
Full Metal Jacket (1987)
Rated R for a few instances of spittle-spewing bad language.
The 68th episode of the Next 100 Project has Stanley Kubrick taking us to Boot Camp & then Vietnam. The picture expertly examines the hypocrisies of ‘Nam, where humanity is cheap. It remains a disturbing film, even if so much of R. Lee Ermey’s much-imitated bullying performance feels cliched now. Fascinations abound.
