* Why the big deal anyway? I don't think The
* Shining was one of Kubrick's better efforts...
Sorry to add little of substance, but having watched Full Metal Jacket two
nights ago, I wanted to contribute my opinions:
FMJ is by far a more accomplished Vietnam War picture than Platoon ever was.
(Did anyone ever see Hearts and Minds? Was that a theatrical release? Is it
available on video--nevermind, I know itis).
As such, it's a lot better than the Shining to me (much scarier), and one of
his best, if not his most arty.
