    "Gentlemen of the court, there are times that I'm ashamed to be a member of the human race and this is one such occasion."

    As soon as this film ended and as soon as I wiped away the tears, I sat there speechless. There are not many films that are able to do that but Paths of Glory absolutely did. This film is simply extraordinary. A complex, intense and unbelievably powerful anti-war film.
