This week on Task & Purpose Radio’s The Warzone, Patrick and Adam are joined by Matt Battaglia to discuss Full Metal Jacket, the 1987 gonzo war epic directed by Stanley Kubrick and based on the semi-autobiographical novel The Short Timers by Gustav Hasford. The film follows a platoon of U.S. Marines as they graduate bootcamp and enter the Vietnam War during the Tet Offensive. Thirty years later, Full Metal Jacket is still widely considered one of the top American war films.
