Paths of Glory (1958)
Directed by Stanley Kubrick

Kirk Douglas gives a powerful performance as an honorable French Army officer who, on orders from his superiors, must lead his men on a doomed mission to wrest control of a German-held hill in WWI France. This stark dramatization was a harbinger of the major themes director Stanley Kubrick would develop throughout his career, underlining the hypocrisy and cynicism of authority.
