A pragmatic U.S. Marine observes the dehumanizing effects the U.S.-Vietnam War has on his fellow recruits from their brutal boot camp training to the bloody street fighting in Hue.
Follow Stanley Kubrick as he creates his savage and brilliant Vietnam film, hewing closely to the theme that dominated his creative life for four decades - the duality of human nature. Poised between good and evil, mankind was, in Kubrick's view, a complex creature equally capable of unspeakable savagery and heart-melting tenderness. Full Metal Jacket would make his case in vivid, blood-soaked Technicolor. Through interviews with Kubrick's collaborators and cast members, including Vincent D'Onofrio, Lee Ermey and Adam Baldwin, this documentary reveals how Kubrick's brilliant visual sense, astute knowledge of human nature, and unique perspective on the duality of man came together to make Full Metal Jacket an unforgettable cinematic experience, taking its place in his "war trilogy" alongside cinematic landmarks Fear and Desire and Paths of Glory.
The poor little Ferkó is trying to enrich his miserable life with imaginary fairy tale figures and superstitious little stories.
A boy becomes a man, and a man becomes a father, in a time before coming of age was something you could Google.
Yellow Jacket: The Beach Crazy Cyclist is a short stop motion animated show for children made in France. It features the quick and whimsical adventures of a bicycle racer weaing a yellow jacket and his nemesis a black jacket wearing cyclist, amongst other toy characters. The cyclists are always model people but the spectators are toys and models like dolls and crabs. Black Jacket and Yellow Jacket are always at the centre of the plot, with Black Jacket using some devious trick to try to win and Yellow Jacket generally not trying to stop him, letting fate or karma prevent Black Jacket from winning. The show is always set at a beach and at a minuscule level. Sometimes a human will, in stop motion form, enter the show. After Yellow Jacket wins the first half of the closing credits plays then a small continuation gag plays and the rest of the credits roll. The sand is real and the bikes leave trails though much of it is not filmed at an actual beach but in a studio.
