This book is actor Matthew Modine’s memoir of the year he spent working for Stanley Kubrick, one of Hollywood’s greatest but most idiosyncratic directors, on the classic Vietnam War film Full Metal Jacket. The format of the book is hardcover—with emphasis on the hard, as it is made of stainless steel. The New York Post referred to it as “part coffee table book, part body armor.” Includes images taken by Modine, as well as text.
