A comparison of vietnam war movies in apocalypse now and full metal jacket

Kubrick instead gave him a smaller role as a helicopter door gunner. I would consider them to be social commentary on the horrors of war and anti-war in theme. It tells a nice story about a young Vietnamese girl in the s who works as a servant for a family.

But on repeat viewings, the flaws in Platoon really stood out and my opinion of the movie dropped a lot, while Full Metal Jacket just got better and better. If you hate war literature, perhaps try this anyway.

Colonel Kilgore Robert Duvall describes a remarkably similar situation in Apocalypse Now after taking the Vietnamese village in dramatic fashion, relating an occasion during which he ordered the napalm bombing of a hill for twelve consecutive hours, and then failing to find a single enemy casualty in the remains.

First of all, while the US armed forces had the men and materiel for a large scale conflict, it was markedly unsuited to fighting a guerrilla war. Quan mixes up his ancestor's urging with the Party's mythology; both seem to be trying to extract life and effort from the people in the name of worthless, illusory glory.

Quan understands him, fears him, recognises in Hung's lack of it what makes him who he is: I highly recommend getting all of these Vietnam episodes, pouring yourself a beer, and watching 5 hours of passion-filled travel that will have you checking in at the airport 30 days early.

The text's meandering, cycling, flat structure mirrors the monotony of the long conflict. He said further that the theme covered "a man testing himself against his own limitations", and he concluded: E Rock and Donlon respectively, two additional members of the Lusthog Squad.

Apocalypse Now

In this case, she did not complete such a documentary. Three other things have coloured my experience of the movie. It is more constructive in narration, editing and cinematography.

I really liked Platoon though. She shot 18 hours of behind-the-scenes footage for a potential "making-of" documentary similar to her earlier film documentary on Kubrick's The Shining If you have not seen Platoon, watch it.

The first ending I chose, I let Konrad shoot me. Hartman gives each of the Marines nicknames; one pragmatic recruit who talks behind his back becomes "Joker" Matthew Modine ; a Texas recruit becomes "Cowboy" Arliss Howard. Marine Corps Training Camp, where a group of young Marine recruits, after having their heads shaved, are being prepped for basic training by the brutal Gunnery Sergeant Hartman R.

Snippets of her work can be seen in the documentary Stanley Kubrick's Boxes The first half follows a group of recruits in boot camp under the command of the punishing Gunnery Sergeant Hartman. But now, decades later, it can be seen for what it is, a big, exciting masterpiece.

In the mass media, there’s none of the guts, inglory and guitar rock of movies like Platoon, Apocalypse Now and Full Metal Jacket. Even major novels written by Vietnamese about the conflict, like Bao Ninh’s The Sorrow of War, enjoy more renown abroad than at home.

Other important films such as "Platoon," "The Deer Hunter," "Full Metal Jacket" and "Casualties of War" take their own approaches to Vietnam. Once at the Hawaii Film Festival I saw five North Vietnamese films about the war. SPOILER: Full Metal Jacket is a realistic Vietnam war film and is one of the best films of the 80's ever made, directed and produced by Stanley Kubrick.

The screenplay by Kubrick, Michael Herr, and Gustav Hasford was based on Hasford's novel The Short-Timers (). View Apocalypse and full clientesporclics.com from BIOLOGY at Southern New Hampshire University.
