My Favourite… R Lee Ermey Film

My Favourite… R Lee Ermey Film

My Favourite… Other Cr*p

As death continues it’s relentless march through the gifted and talented of TV and film, My Favourite… celebrates those we have lost by taking a look at a slice of their best work. Well sometimes best, sometimes just the one I like the most.

This time out: My Favourite…. R Lee Ermey (1944-2018) Film

 

FULL METAL JACKET (1987)

A pragmatic U.S. Marine observes the dehumanizing effects the Vietnam War has on his fellow recruits from their brutal boot camp training to the bloody street fighting in Hue.

Stanly Kubrick’s brutal 1987 war film Full Metal Jacket showed the horrors of war both at home and away. But for all the great performances it was that of the sadistic drill sergeant that was the most memorable.  R Lee Ermey was a consultant on the film, himself a former drill sergeant.  But after failing to find someone who could deliver as well as Ermey in the role, Kubrick instead cast him and we had the start of a career that would span decades, often playing a take on the character seen here.  But Ermey was FAR better than just rehashing this role and would go on to add some serious films to his resume and work with some of Hollywoods best directors.
