Full Metal Jacket and its historical context 4. Methodical Analysis of scenes 6. Introduction The Vietnam War was a traumatic event of the recent American history. Due to harsh criticism both at home and abroad of the American involvement in Vietnam, the film industry struggled to produce notable Vietnam War films during the conflict.
Only in the late s Hollywood came up with significant films that were trying to came to terms with the past. Down to the present day, the film industry has produced a number of Vietnam War films.
What is special about these films is that they show a high level of diversity. In this seminar paper I will examine how the Vietnam War is portrayed in Full Metal Jacket and outline its context in relation with other filmic presentations of the Vietnam War.
In particular, I will focus on the drafting and military drill of young men, as well as on the effects that the drill and the war itself had on recruits. I will first introduce the historical event the film is dealing with and outline its filmic presentations and film-historical context.
Then I will briefly introduce the film and provide information regarding its historical context. The central question of this paper is, which specific perspective is illustrated in Full Metal Jacket and to what extent the film can be classified along other Vietnam War films.
In resuming thoughts I will first establish what stance Full Metal Jacket takes towards the Vietnam War and how this perspective is created. Finally I will introduce selected scenes and examine the method of the film in portraying the Vietnam War.
The conflict occurred as a result of a resistance movement of the Vietnamese communists against the French colonial rule and led to a civil war between North and South Vietnam. From the United States started to support South Vietnam, firstly by dispatching military advisors and from by the massive use of their armed forces.
From United States forces were gradually withdrawn and Vietnam was unified under communist rule. These are the central aspects, Full Metal Jacket is dealing with. During the war period between and approximately 8, men served in the armed forces of the United States. There were two ways of entering the military: Roughly 2, men were drafted and had to serve for two years in the armed forces.
All men at the age of 18 had to register for the draft. However, since the Korean War ended in and the armed forces were well filled, the military took steps to reduce the number of potential recruits to a prudent level.
As a result, all men between 18 and 25 were in a primary pool. This led to an average age of 22 for a soldier fighting in Vietnam, which is very young.Christiane Kubrick had 42 wonderful years with her husband. But in the decade since his death, she has been beset by tragedy.

As a direct consequence, the band spent eight months off-and-on in the studio not only recording the album but getting used to—and experimenting with—the new technology. In Stanley Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket”, it is difficult to determine the role that women play simply because of the glaring lack of female characters.
