Film #41: Full Metal Jacket

A film in two-parts starting with an excellent way to revitalise any flagging marathon goers as the incredible R. Lee Ermey Drill Sergeant performance pretty much prevented us from nodding off. It's easily one of my favourite performances ever committed to film, and easily holds up. 

The second half flags in my opinion and seems to feature his platoon constantly going through the same location (the set is in Beckton, east London). This film also finishes with a song, this time the Mickey Mouse club theme song.
