Paths of Glory
Based on an actual incident, Stanley Kubrick’s scathing anti-war classic set in the mud-packed trenches of WWI is his first masterpiece, featuring an unforgettable ensemble of Hollywood actors at the top of their game. Bavaria stands in for France as Kubrick’s effortlessly mobile camera prowls the trenches as with the elan of a Max Ophuls. With one of the great endings of all time. If you don’t tear up, you’re made of stone.
