Part of the VICE Presents: The Film Foundation Screening Series at Nitehawk Cinema. Includes a recorded introduction by Patti Podesta, Production Designer who designed the KUBRICK exhibition at LACMA.
As Stanley Kubrick’s first large-scale feature made at the tender age of 28 and based on the novel by Humphrey Cobb, Paths of Glory depicts the horrors of Europe in its harsh portrayal of the French Army in WWI (a depiction that would see the film banned in France until 1975).
The boast of heraldry, the pomp of pow’r,
And all that beauty, all that wealth e’er gave,
Awaits alike th’inevitable hour.
The paths of glory lead but to the grave.
-Thomas Gray – “Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard“
