Full Metal Jacket (1987)

3 Stars (out of 4)

'Nam de Plume

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

I've come to appreciate Full Metal Jacket more and more since I first saw it in 1987. I still think the first half, the boot camp sequence, is much more powerful than the Vietnam War sequences in the second half. But that first half is jaw-droppingly good, thanks mostly to R. Lee Ermey's performance as the gruesome drill sergeant. Kubrick's camera is every bit as regimented as the men's lives, growing ever more out of control as Private Pyle (Vincent D'Onofrio) does.
