#244: Paths of Glory
Scathing irony, valiant soldiers, a courageous leader, an inglorious setup, a selfish general, a terse indictment, a judgement so insensitive, an ending so powerful and a film so poignant.
I need to only mention one line to sum it all up: "The men died wonderfully well..."
Thank you Humphrey Cobb, Stanley Kubrick and Kirk Douglas.
