Paths of Glory (PG)

Director Stanley Kubrick. 1957 Drama/War


In the French front lines of World War I, after giving the order for an impossible and disastrous mission to capture a nearby stronghold, the upper ranks move to save face by having three randomly selected soldiers held and tried for cowardice under pain of death. Their leader, Colonel Dax (in a powerhouse performance by Kirk Douglas) a former lawyer in civilian life, handles their defence against overwhelming odds. A stylistically astonishing, emotionally overwhelming anti-war drama, Paths of Glory is one of the screen's most brilliant condemnations of the power structures guiding warfare.

Starring Kirk Douglas, Ralph Meeker, Adolphe Menjou
