Full Metal Jacket, a 1987 movie, is directed by Stanley Kubrick, streaming on Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. It is a war based and dramatic movie, starring Matthew Modine, Vincent D'Onofrio, and Lee Ermey.
The movie involves two parts of the military story, where Joker and Pyle experience the Vietnamese city and the Vietnam War. The first part involves the Vietnam War, where the ruthless drill instructor, Hartman, uses strict methods for training.
Part 2 shows the year January 1968, where “Joker”(Matthew Modine) is a sergeant. While he is sent to Phu Bai, for there is an enemy attack throughout South Vietnam, he is also accompanied by Rafterman, a combat photographer.
Towards the end of the movie, Joker states that “in a world of shit” he is glad that he is alive, and he is no longer afraid since he shoots a girl previously during the shootout. Based on The Short-Timers by Gustav Hasford, the development of this film commenced bad relations between Hasford and Kubrick.
The development started via preparing the drafts consisting of scenes where Stanley Kubrick, Gustav Hasford, and Michael Herr were working together.
However, the contribution to the screenplay, towards the end, aroused a dispute among them over the final credits, thus leading Hasford not to meet with Kubrick again.
