Full Metal Jacket
Stanley Kubrick's unflinching Vietnam War drama starts as it means to go on with raw recruits Matthew Modine and Vincent D'Onofrio being put through boot camp hell by merciless drill sergeant R Lee Ermey. Then it's out of the mental frying pan and into the fire as the platoon is sent straight to the frontline for the battle for Hué in 1968. Prepare for cinematic shellshock.
