A superb ensemble cast falls in for action in Stanley Kubrick's brilliant saga about the Vietnam War and the dehumanizing process that turns people into trained killers.

Joker, Animal Mother, Gomer, Eightball, Cowboy and more - all are plunged into a boot-camp hell pitbulled by a leatherlung D.I. who views the would-be devil dogs as grunts, maggots or something less.

The action is savage, the story unsparing, the dialogue spiked with scathing humor. Full Metal Jacket, from its rigours of basic training to its nightmare of combat in Hue City, scores a cinematic direct hit.

The true, dramatic story of Franz von Werra, the only German prisoner-of-war in Britain to escape and return to his homeland.

The Battle of Britain is at its height. Out of the vapour-traced sky a Messerschmitt spins and plunges onto British soil. Even though the pilot is captured, he is extremely confident and an official interrogation does not deter him from his one objective - to escape and return home against all the odds.

His bid for freedom takes him from England to Canada and into the still neutral United States - before making his way back to Germany.

The One That Got Away stars Hardy Kruger - a real-life prisoner of war, who escaped from the Americans on three occasions - as the cocky and charismatic von Werra.

When cold and brutal official Wiesler is given the task of spying on acclaimed playright Dreyman and his actress girlfriend, he relishes the task, knowing that if he uncovers subversive behaviour he will gain favour with his boss. But the longer he listens in on the couple, their friendships, passions and ideas, the more he realises that his own life and the harsh political regime are lacking in colour and joy in many respects. Slowly he begins to doubt the morality of his job and politics.

As the lines between orders and compassion become blurred, Wiesler becomes more involved with his subject, walking a dangerous path between his duty and his new found reality. (German with English subtitles)
