Full Metal Jacket ★★★★★

"Sir, NEGATIVE, sir! Sir, the private believes any answer he gives will be wrong and the Senior Drill Instructor will only beat him harder if he reverses himself, SIR!"

A movie about deconstructing masculinity, masculinity's stranglehold on the world, masculinity's futility with combat, the mechanics of war, the flawless system, American mythos, scatology, repression of self, big dicks, free will and the dichotomy of men and killers. One of 9 Kubrick masterpieces.
