CB 124:  Stanley Kubrick’s “Paths of Glory,” 1957.

General Broulard:  These executions will be a perfect tonic for the entire division.  There are few things more fundamentally encouraging and stimulating than seeing someone else die.

Colonel Dax:  I never thought of that, sir.

I avoided Paths of Glory for years because I assumed Kubrick’s earlier work wouldn’t—or couldn’t—yet possess his trademark visual style. I assumed it’d be a more generic-looking, prestige war film.  I thoroughly enjoyed being proven wrong.
