There are a lot of war movies. A lot. And this is somwhere at the top. Maybe at the very top. Kubricks 4th full length feature does all the things his first movie did right, with most of the soldiers being very flawed characters, and adds so much more. This movie is so good. I can't stop thinking about it. The court scene reminded me a lot of 12 Angry Men, which is always a fantastic thing. And the execution scene was so fantastically done. Kubrick definitely knocked it out of the park with this one.
Side note: The military is still this shitty and war is fucking awful.
