FULL METAL JACKET


















Full Metal Jacket is the first Kubrick movie I ever saw. Maybe the first war movie I properly watched. That whole section with the Marine training is pretty intense stuff. I rewatched the movie recently and the scene with Private Pyle going mental is still very gripping and chilling; the acting, the colour palette, the music, etc. Great stuff. To end; some of my favourite lines...

"You had best unf*ck yourself or I will unscrew your head and shit down your neck!"



"I don't know but I've been told, Eskimo pussy's mighty cold"



God has a hard-on for Marines because we kill everything we see! He plays His games, we play ours!

Deadly, captures the mood of Pyles final scene,the silhouette of Gny. Sgt. Hartman is class.
Ps
Merry Xmas to all, may Annual Giftman be kind and generous.
