Full Metal Jacket ★★★★½

It's funny, intense, creative, powerful, and entertaining. Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket is easily one of the greatest war films of all time as it shows not only deep insight into the characters, but also insight into the environment and world around these people. It makes you question the very fabric of morality and gives a somewhat comical look at the flaws of humanity and how we can be both built and destroyed in the environment we live in. Full Metal Jacket is a film that transcends the "war" genre, as it hits an important emotional note that can connect to our own lives, however different they may be.
