"With flowers and my love both never to come back ... It's not easyfacing up when your whole world is black". So sings the man whosethrobbing song marks the film's end, merciless lyrics to describethematically a story that is as wrenching as it is mesmerizing.

There are no villains in this film, only heroic victims. The villainsare all off-screen, comfy behind mahogany desks, or dressed for successand giving shrill speeches about how maintaining peace requires war.Strange logic.

First it's boot camp, a dreary prospect at best, for an ordinary groupof young American men. Here, a sadistic drill Sargent, in colorfullanguage, barks out orders and insults straight from Hades. It's do ordie, almost literally, for our greenhorns. It's an ordeal of blacknessfrom which some may never recover. Still, the grunts learn a valuablelesson; namely, that life is mostly physical, not mental. It's a lessonsome ivory tower college professors never learn.

But then it's on to an even blacker black ... Vietnam. Combat scenesare rendered believable by effective visuals and terrific soundeffects: pounding percussion, amplified sounds of equipment andfootsteps across explosive debris, and an always present,ever-so-subtle ... echo. Potent and torturous, these scenes convey aZen-like immediacy, an impending sense of doom. And then at film's end,those lyrics ...

Composed of two, barely overlapping, parts, the script's structure is abit unorthodox. But the film works, owing to an intensity that neverlets up. R. Lee Ermey is of course terrific as the harsh drillmaster.Casting of the young lions is okay, though a tad weak in one or twocases. Insertion of pop songs of the era works well, to amplify thecultural disconnect between a war-torn Vietnam and an indifferentAmerica.

Like reading a history book, watching an occasional war movie is goodfor the soul. It puts one's problems in perspective. For that reason,this particular war movie is better than most. It's riveting, intense.And the sense of impending blackness hovers ever present over thestory's heroic victims, like the sword of Damocles.

Though I've read only a couple of dozen of the nearly 500 comments onthis film, I didn't see any from ex-Marines who'd had the Parris Islandexperience. I went through PI in 1957. The time period in the picturewould have been about 1967, since the in-country sequence includes the'68 Tet Offensive. Little had changed in those 10 years except theswitch from M1s to M16s.

For the most part Kubrick got Parris Island right on the money. And whyshouldn't he have, since his screen DI, Lee Ermey was in fact a real DIbefore he started acting (he played another DI in "The Boys of CompanyC," an earlier and lesser Vietnam flick)? He had a built- in technicaladviser. The screams and insults and profanity and physical punishmentwere all part of the DIs armamentarium. When you're facing up to 75young strangers you need to immediately establish absolute authorityand hang on to it for 13 weeks. Furthermore, you want to break thebreakable as soon as you can. My platoon had its Private Pyles andthough none ended up as he does in "Full Metal Jacket," I remember thatthey simply disappeared from our ranks, never to be heard from again.Nothing Ermey as Sgt. Hartman does is exaggerated.

Kubrick, however, does exaggerate. Speaking of Pyle's ending, it'salmost impossible for me to imagine that a recruit could manage tosneak a clip of live rounds away from the rifle range. Every shooter atthe range has his own rifle coach, and every single round is verycarefully accounted for. Kubrick started the killing one scene tooearly.

I've read that DIs nowadays are forbidden to use the time-honoredf-word, and are not allowed to lay hands on recruits. I don't know ifthat's good or bad for training (I had my face slapped hard my firstday of boot camp and that was just for openers), but then all of usold-timers like to brag about how tough it useta be!

A final note: It's interesting to compare "Full Metal Jacket" toanother attempt at a portrayal of Parris Island, Jack Webb's "The DI,"made around '55 or '56. Webb tries for authenticity, but as I was tolearn a year or so later, his PI was a boy scout camp.
