So Full Metal Jacket is now seen as a recruiting poster

 

 

 

 

It’s official. Irony’s gone dead and buried.

The Facebook world tonight is apparently full of jarheads boasting about how this certifiably wacky movie character and movie itself actually inspired them to become Marines.

Did these dudes even get that picture? Did they ever learn how to take it all in? Connotation, denotation, that kind of stuff? Did the schools neglect them badly and not do their part? Their parents and grandparents?

Or in this case, what the hell happened?

 

 

This has become an incredibly stupid and dangerous country. There will be no salvation. It’s too far down the rathole and the rest of the world knows it.

 

 

Uh-huh.

    Many young men in the UK and US imitated Alex and his droogies. Kubrick bought the UK rights and held the film from distribution for a really long time.
