Stanley Kubrik is one crazy-ass mofo. I watched Full Metal Jacket today for the first time in a couple of years. It is a full-on, in-your-face, super-intense masterpiece. It is definitely one of the greatest movies of all time.
I wrote in a previous post that it would’ve been damn cool to live during the Vietnam War era, but then I would get drafted for the war… and I’m not sure how I feel about that.
I probably would have been a closet hippie. Or maybe a journalist, like Joker was in the movie. I’m definitely not the Animal Mother type.
“Tonight, you men will sleep with your rifles. You will give your rifle a girl’s name because this is the only pussy you people are going to get. Your days of finger-banging ol’ Mary J. Rottencrotch through her pertty pink panties are over! You’re married to this piece. This weapon of iron and wood. And you will be faithful. ”
Your life can not be fulfilled without experiencing the genius of Kubrick and the vision of Full Metal Jacket.
