Paths of Glory USA 1957. Directed by Stanley Kubrick, 88 min. PG

APR 10 @ 1PM

A masterful, unsentimental, classic anti-war film about World War I, Paths of Glory was 28 year- old Stanley Kubrick’s fourth feature-length film. During World War I, commanding officer General Broulard (Adolphe Menjou) orders his subordinate, General Mireau (George Macready), to attack a German trench position. Though the mission is foolhardy to the point of suicide, Mireau commands his subordinate, Colonel Dax (Kirk Douglas), to plan the attack. When it ends in disaster, General Mireau demands the court-martial of three random soldiers to save face. Long considered one of Kubrick’s best films, don’t miss it on the big screen.
