User Reviews

Full Metal Jacket, 70 Years before
2 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

An profound and astonishingly powerful film which, after the vile-spiritedness of "Birth Of A Nation" and the seeming hubris of "Intolerance", affirmed Griffith as a genuine humanist. A genuine anti-war film, unambivalent and unafraid to capture the truest horror.
