For a sufficiently large budget (compared to "Space Odyssey" "Lights"), 30 million dollars, Stanley Kubrick wanted to address the topic of the then current war in Vietnam. I think a large part of this money was spent on bad shots, captured on film, soaked in the tears of the makeup and pyrotechnics. Knowing the oddity Kubrick when using camera, I think if the soldiers were not simultaneously, or the building exploded unevenly, the Director does not like to swear, like Sergeant Hartman, but the mood would all spoiled.

In a review of "Apocalypse now" I mentioned Hollywood kinodela in similar movies more focus on the questions "Why this?", "Why this war?". "full Metal jacket" not exception, this is a film that leaves a strange aftertaste — like the humor is there, and characters saying funny lines, but knowing what situation is the hero, smile, something does not pull. At this area of "comfort" characters to the course of the film expands, and if yesterday you defy the Sergeant on what light is, then tomorrow you already boys playing soccer a severed head (scene cut). So that they themselves treat the concept of "header".

The first half of the film takes place in camp even young boys are undergoing training. There are three key character — private Joker, private Pyle and Sergeant Hartman. By the way, the image of Hartman, so entrenched the film, there's an accident. Actor er Do Ermi were originally present on Playground as a military consultant, but Kubrick so amused as he swore that has offered him the role. For the training scenes, accompanied by a filigree Mat Hartman has in common is the idea — army — this is a Prime example of a system that frays all and equates under one size fits all. And if someone does not ready to pass this test, is a possible outcome. — lead to head and the brain to tile.

The second half brings the Joker in Vietnam, where he gets a war correspondent. Surprising, because Michael Herr, a friend of Kubrick's who helped him to register the script, he has held such a role in the theater of operations. Raises the theme of human cruelty, the necessity of war, misinformation in the media. And regularly demonstrates that all these guys, brought up in camps like hartmanella, sleep, and see they kill people. And the question — whether to do? For such thoughts the Joker can be called almost the only positive character. Yes even its closet, including the icon of "peace in the world" helmet inscription "Born to Kill" emphasizes the absurdity of the situation.

Well, the technical component of the movie is great. Catch the symmetry in the frame, close-up character with a tilted head, creating a tense atmosphere. Yeah and attack on Vietnamese fortress, taken from hip, deserves attention. But here in terms of musical innovation. No chords classical instruments, half the soundtrack consists of a media hits the ' 80s. "Surfin Bird" in the battlefield, the song of the "Mickey mouse club", "Paint It Black" in the back end — something all enough.

"full Metal jacket" not claim something innovative, but impresses with its affordability, style, even a semblance of humor. Here there is something turning the minds of the audience, but thoughts on the eternal theme of the bribe in viewing. The Director plays on the feelings of the viewer, and it is hell, it turns out.

This is one of the most violent movies I saw. It realistic over all limits and cruelty exceeds all the border. To watch a movie is difficult, although, I understand that it's just a movie, but while browsing about forget immersed in the real horror. These movies are worse than any horror film, because it shows the life and relationships of people. And it is always scary.

The actor and Director's work is extraordinary. After this film I became interested in the work of Kubrick and farther — the worse. A terrible person.

The actors, though, and not Hollywood stars of the first magnitude, but they played goose skin. Adam Baldwin, Matthew Modine and Vincent D'onofrio were born for these roles, because more than any one of them, I anywhere not remember, but sorry. The actors are decent.

After watching this film I have ceased to believe in what good always wins. It is not.

Unconditional and obligatory classics. 1 4 great movies about the war in Vietnam.

At the American military base of the pain and humiliation, fueled unhealthy patriotism, creating a new kind of people — people born to kill. For what? For so nice to die in a foreign country, for hundreds of miles from home, being the most used. As the patron of the race machine. Not thinking, not looking back, trying only to live a little longer.

Surprisingly honest, heartfelt film, which is impossible not to sympathize with the soldier, which became the meat for a wild slaughter. The madness and futility of war, for separately taken an American soldier. The war, which is one great shame for the whole American nation.

Rude. flat soldier humor, as one of the parties to the universal madness. Perfect music, colorful characters. In the result — original all times.
