Exactly 30 years prior to this film, Kubrick made the very effective "anti-war" film, Paths of Glory.
I loved and loathed being on the verbal shooting range of sergeant Hartman as he slowly but surely turned these young boys into bareboned killer machines, and I equally found interest in seeing the different effects that war can have on you in the second part of the film.
Full Metal Jacket is a fantastic film for its various performances and not so black and white take on war, among other things.
