Paths of Glory (1957)

Stanley Kubrick directs Paths of Glory, his next movie Spartacus is one on my favorites. Kubrick directs many of the best movies of our time, movies like 2001, Clockwork Orange and Full Metal Jacket.

Paths of Glory (1957)

Paths of Glory is one of  Kirk Douglas best performances as Col Dax,  working to save his men from being shot as cowards. Everything about the movie is well done. There is no bad acting,  the pace,  photography and dialogue are some of the best you’ll ever see. Scene after scene is more powerful than the one preceding. It’s a classic movie, deserving a place on anyone best movie list.

“There are few things more fundamentally encouraging and stimulating than seeing someone else die. “
