Paths Of Glory (1957)

 Rated R for a spot or two of f-bombery.

Stanley Kubrick’s anti-war classic is what we’ve got for the 63rd episode in the Next 100 Project. Kirk Douglas brings the passion in a movie filled with moral calamity. The fairly small cast is fine, but the (true) story and Kubrick’s direction are what set this apart from other “war is awful” movies.
