Three cracking movies.
2001: A Space Odyssey
A four-million-year-old black monolith is discovered on the moon, and the government sends a team of scientists on a fact-finding mission while hiding the truth from the public. Later, another team is sent to Jupiter in a ship controlled by the perfect HAL 9000 computer to further investigate the giant object--but something goes terribly wrong.
Full Metal Jacket
Full Metal Jacket begins by following the trials and tribulations of a platoon of fresh Marine Corps recruits focusing on the relationship between Gunnery Sergeant Hartman and Privates Pyle and Joker. We see Pyle grow into an instrument of death as Hartman has foreseen of all of his recruits. Through Pyle's torment and Joker's unwillingness to stand up against it, the climax of part one is achieved with all three main characters deciding their fates by their action or lack there of. The second chapter of Full Metal Jacket delves into Joker's psyche and the repeated referral to the fact that he joined the Corps to become a killer. When his mostly behind the scenes job as a combat correspondent is interfered with by the Tet offensive he is thrusted into real combat and ultimately must choose if he really is a killer.
A Clockwork Orange
The old ultra-violence is back, as ultra-brilliant as anything Stanley Kubrick ever directed. Demonic gang-leader Alex - Malcolm McDowell's career defining performance - goes on the spree of rape, mugging and murder with his pack of "droogs." But he's a boy who also likes Beethoven's Ninth and a bit of "the old in-out, in-out." Then he finds himself at the mercy of the state and its brainwashing experiment designed to take violence off the street and put it at the service of the government.
