8 September - Paths of Glory - Rated PG (for ages 12 and up)

(Screening time - 7pm / Run time 1h 25m)

Synopsis: Stanley Kubrick’s Paths of Glory is among the most powerful antiwar films ever made. This is a haunting, exquisitely photographed dissection of the military machine in all its absurdity and capacity for dehumanization.

You can sense Kubrick stretching his cinematic wings in this prime slice of Hollywood liberalism (The Guardian)

For all its chilly symmetry and beauty, the sheer injustice shown will have your pulse racing (Film 4)

The searing Paths Of Glory continues to impress with its striking blend of formal brilliance, economical storytelling and emotional directness (BBC)
