Austen Riggs Center
Discussion led by Jason Mallo, D.O.
Director: Stanley Kubrick
1987 (120 mins)
Full Metal Jacket uniquely touches on the theme of war and trauma by focusing on the dehumanizing process that turns people into trained killers. In Stanley Kubrick's return to filmmaking after a 17-year hiatus, this film crystallizes the experience of the Vietnam War by concentrating on a group of raw Marine volunteers. From the rigors of basic training to the nightmare of combat, the film will no doubt have an impact on how you think about war and trauma.
Films are free and open to the public, no reserved seating and refreshments will be served.
