PATHS OF GLORY (1957)
Color Me Kubrick Month (Post #5)
Paths of Glory
This anti-war/political manipulation classic set in the French trenches of World War I still remains a powerful work today.
Here are three memorable scenes:
1)The battle scene. And there's only one. And It's not expansive. But it is effective.
2)The courtroom scene. Kirk Doulas vs. Richard "Six Million Dollar Man's boss" Anderson. A stunning example of justice not served.
3) The scene with the firing squad featuring the cowardly squad leader having to blind fold the man he unfairly chose to be executed as well as the always bizarre Timothy Carey.
