A great classic

I had the privilege to see this flick on the big screen but since it was already 15 years ago, a re-watch was really needed. And I wasn't disappointed. Indeed, back then, I was pretty impressed but the second time around, I was really blown away. Basically, the whole thing is just so shocking, heartbreaking and downright revolting. In my opinion, it is easily the best movie starring Kirk Douglas a... read more

General Broulard: "Colonel Dax, you're a disappointment to me. You've spoiled the keenness of your mind by wallowing in sentimentality. You really did want to save those men, and you were not angling for Mireau's command. You are an idealist - and I pity you as I would the village idiot. We're fighting a war, Dax, a war that we've got to win. Those men didn't fight, so they were shot. You bring ch... read more

Great Kubrick war film but not as good as FMJ...

This is a fantastic war film which is very underrated. This is a film about World War I which is the first film that I have seen about that. People seem to make more films about World War II because it was probably darker. This film showed both the similarity and difference between World Wars I and II. This film had often mixed ways with both films. The story is rather dark with very hard hitting ... read more

The futility and irony of the war in the trenches in WWI is shown as a unit commander in the French army must deal with the mutiny of his men and a glory-seeking general after part of his force falls back under fire in an impossible attack.

100 Greatest Golden Age Hollywood Films (100 movies items)

"Although it was released in 1957, Stanley Kubrick's 'Paths of Glory' feels considerably ahead of its time in its deliberate move away from the celebrations of tragic heroism that had characterised most mainstream War films since WWII. Based on a novel by Humphrey Cobb, 'Paths of Glory' instead adopts a bold anti-war tone with an emphasis on criticising the military and their treatment of soldiers as cannon fodder. Though it does feature some excellent action in and around the trenches, 'Paths of"

"Stanley Kubrick delivers a powerfully bleak, predictably intense antiwar drama, starring Kirk Douglas, about a military incursion gone awry."
