    One of the best performances of Jake Gyllenhaal on screen. The storytelling, the unpleasantness, the uncanny, and an audience hooked with the character of pure evil are what make this a masterpiece of a movie. The eyes of Jake Gyllenhaal amplified the character's unmoving evil as more terrifying and uncomfortable. What a performance!!

    This movie is the epitome of how conversations between individuals can be heightened to such an experience it will keep you captivated and thrilled and it will leave an impact on the viewers own personal moral grounds.

    Stanley Kubrick's path of glory is without doubt a product of his ingenuity and his ability to stun the viewers and by the end of the day leave the audience with contemplating their own dilemmas and morals. Paths of glory deals with such important moral stances of our own hypocrisy, narrow mind, moral grounds and nature of human beings. A perfect movie that encapsulates the essence of war and how the psyche of human mind operates. It's influence can be felt throughout all modern war movies.
