Full Metal Jacket is a 1987 war film directed, co-written, and produced by Stanley Kubrick. An American soldier experiences the dehumanization of war from military training to the Tet Offensive in the Vietnam War. At Paris Island, new recruits encounter physical and emotional trauma as they become U.S. Marines. One escapes war through a journalism assignment, but he, too, becomes morally conflicted when faced with sniper fire. The cast crew included Matthew Modine, R. Lee Ermey, Vincent D'Onofrio and Adam Baldwin.
