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.

"26.11. A film loosely based on French military mutiny of the late Great War. Around that time Frech army was severy exhausted and people were demanding peace, mutinies arose but they were taken down and they took bunch of the rebels and executed them as warning to the rest of them. The mutinies also ended up having to make changes to the tactics and logistics, but that isn't mentioned in the film. Wonderful film, well researched and executed realism of war, but little exaggerated in few places"

“I saw this movie for the first time on television today, after being persuaded by the reviews I read beforehand praising it. Also I like Kirk Douglas. Although I am not directly familiar with Kubrick's work, a shameful admission I know. Out of what I have seen so far I loved Dr Strangelove and despite only seeing it once while flicking through channels liked The Shining too. Anyway back on target, Paths of Glory was brilliant in my opinion!

Winston Churchill famously claimed that it was this movie that was closest to evoking the atmosphere of WW1 and the military mind. And you know what, he is right. For one thing, Paths of Glory is gorgeously filmed, with relentlessly beautiful cinematography and nice costumes and scenery. The screenplay is sometimes humorous, sometimes moving a” read more
