Full Metal Jacket

Yet another movie based on the Vietnam War, but a Stanley Kubrick movie will always be unique. It starts right at the bootcamp, where fresh recruits are indoctrinated and gradually stripped of their individuality, turned into glorified killing machines.You are then taken to Vietnam, and the intensity increases from then on, till it reaches the pinnacle at the end when they’re encountered by a lone hidden sniper. Don’t watch this as an action movie, its more about the effect of violence on one’s mind. Like the movie catchphrase says… “In Vietnam the wind doesn’t blow, it sucks”
