Join us to watch “Paths of Glory” (1957) starring Kirk Douglas, and linger afterwards to discuss it with the group. The movie, directed by Stanley Kubrick, is among the most powerful antiwar films ever made. Douglas stars as a World War I French colonel who goes head-to-head with the army’s ruthless top brass when his men are accused of cowardice after being unable to carry out an impossible mission. It’s a haunting, exquisitely photographed dissection of the military machine in all its absurdity and capacity for dehumanization.
