Full Metal Jacket, the celebrated Kubrick film that delivers a gripping and scathing look at war and the military “process” is now available in an Anniversary edition Blu-Ray book, and I’ve got a copy for you to win.
Popularity and awards aside, Full Metal Jacket (like most Kubrick films) left a clear mark that became more than just an iconic moment of the culture. Love, hate, or indifference, you couldn’t help talking about it, and it was a film that pushed the collective sense of what films can do to such a degree that we live in its wake still.
