Full Metal Jacket


Setting Parris Island training grounds in South Carolina


Characters Matthew Modine as Private/Sergeant James T. "Joker" Davis, the protagonist/narrator Arliss Howard as the Texan Private / Sergeant "Cowboy“ Private Leonard "Gomer Pyle" Lawrence Gunnery Sergeant Hartman Corporal "Eightball" "Animal Mother"


Summary The movie follows the stories of “joker” and “cowboy” as they begin boot camp in North Carolina (the first half of the film) and then follows the new shipment of marines to Vietnam. From here on out the film is more cinematic, with dialogue becoming very spaced out.


Theme This movie outlines the dehumanizing effects the Vietnam War had on the soldiers in it, from basic training to the war itself.


Director Stanley Kubrick was an American film director, writer, producer, and photographer. He’s done many critically acclaimed movies in the past decades, including 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Shining, A Clockwork Orange, and Paths of Glory, the first of three films of his about the dehumanizing effects of war.
