Gunnery Hartman

(be advised, mature content) Truly the yardstick to which all drill sergeants ought to be measured against, R Lee Emery’s profanity laden, vicious Gunnery Sargent Hartman is a pure nightmare for the cadets in his beloved corps but a thing of absolute hilarity for us. His improvisation here is worth taking notes and spouting them at those unfamiliar with Stanley Kubrick’s 1987 war drama Full Metal Jacket (my favourite of his filmography). Many remember fondly of the first 40 minutes, particularly because we don’t see Hartman afterwards, I still find the remainder of the film quite fascinating. Whether it’s anti war or not, It’s depiction of the dehumanization of soldiers is quite startling and disturbing really.
