A pragmatic U.S. Marine observes the dehumanizing effects the Vietnam War has on his fellow recruits from their brutal boot camp training to the bloody street fighting in Hue.
This was the penultimate film for director Stanley Kubrick. He would not direct his final film, Eyes Wide Shut (1999), until twelve years later.
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman:
I am Gunnery Sergeant Hartman, your senior drill instructor. From now on you will speak only when spoken to, and the first and last words out of your filthy sewers will be "Sir". Do you maggots understand that?
Recruits: Sir, yes Sir.
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: Bullshit I can't hear ...
When the Drill Instructor walks down the row of recruits during his opening speech, Pvt. Pyle can be seen standing at the end of the row to Joker's right. Later, after Joker mouths off, the Drill Instructor moves down the line to Joker's left, eventually coming to Pvt. Pyle.
