    FILM ANALYSIS: FULL METAL JACKET War is a tragic, yet important, piece of history that people must be aware of. Having several documentations and recreations of these wars into films should give a much wider audience of different generations the privilege to learn about the pain and struggles that people went through.

    In its ability to both challenge and confront previous conventions of the Hollywood war film genre, Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket (1987) is a provocative and philosophical cinematic experience. Starring R. Lee Ermey as the diabolical Sergeant Hartman, Vincent D’Onofrio as the childlike and naïve private Lawrence or “Gomer Pyle” and Matthew Modine as the sarcastic Private Davis or “Joker”; the film portrays the gruelling experience of the Vietnam war through the perspective of new U.S…

    Interdisciplinary Paper Whether it was the war in Vietnam, the Civil Rights movement, the second-wave of feminism, or Watergate, the sixties were an extremely influential time that molded young Americans’ outlook on society and the future.
