Full Metal Jacket (1987)

           In 2003 the US military budget exceeded the military spending of all other countries combined. For some this is a cause to glorify war, so a film that reminds us of the obscenity, vulgarity and human carnage of battle is a good bet. Writer and producer Stanley Kubrick follows a group of Marines from basic training on Paris Island to bombed out buildings with snipers in Vietnam (filmed on sets in England). The sadistic drill sergeant has an amazing gift for obscenity as he trains these his “ministers of death.”
