  1. Nice write up. I absolutely love FMJ, it’s probably my favourite Kubrick film. One of the film’s major themes is the duality of man, which I personally think is what the two halves of the film represent. I think Kubrick always knew exactly what he was doing.

  2. Such a great film, Alyson. You hit the nail on the head with this one – I agree that the first half is stronger than the second, and that finale of half #1 is powerful stuff, but there’s plenty in the latter stages that is still pretty powerful stuff. Loved Adam Baldwin in this one too, such an underrated actor.
