This month we’re stuck deep in no man’s land, about to engage in a combative debate about the merits of Stanley Kubrick’s early anti-war film Paths of Glory.
This podcast is non-profit and has been broadcast for educational purposes. Excerpts from the following material has been included to enhance the listener experience:
Paths of Glory (1957) dir. Stanley Kubrick, USA
Spartacus (1960) dir. Stanley Kubrick, USA
Full Metal Jacket (1987) dir. Stanley Kubrick, UK
“Army Dreamers” (1980), w & p: Kate Bush
Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard, Thomas Gray, 1751
The boast of heraldry, the pomp of pow’r,
And all that beauty, all that wealth e’er gave,
Awaits alike th’ inevitable hour.
The paths of glory lead but to the grave.
