The Stanley Kubrick Exhibit at LACMA
The newly opened showcase runs through June of next year
"Full Metal Jacket" (1987)
A wall dedicated to Kubrick's war film "Full Metal Jacket," which fits nicely in his canon of same with "Paths of Glory" and "Dr. Strangelove." The film is often mistaken as a Vietnam location shoot, but it was in fact filmed in England with impeccable production design elements. Vincent D'Onofrio broke Robert De Niro's previously-set record of weight gain for a role by packing on some 70 lbs. for the role of Private Leonard "Gomer Pyle" Lawrence.
