Having already made an anti-war film with 'Paths of Glory' in the 1950s, Stanley Kubrick set out to make a pure war movie with 'Full Metal Jacket,' working with co-writers Michael Herr and Gustav Hasford, basing the screenplay on Hasford’s novel “The Short-Timers.” Unlike contemporaries Francis Ford Coppola and Oliver Stone, Kubrick elected to film the entirety of the film in his adopted home of England, and the result is a both crisply photographed and dreamy version of Vietnam. The movie stars Matthew Modine as Private Joker, and R. Lee Ermey in an unforgettable role as Gunnery Sergeant Hartman.
