Metacritic

100

Banned in France for 18 years, this masterpiece still packs a wallop, though nothing in it is as simple as it may first appear; audiences are still arguing about the final sequence, which has been characterized as everything from a sentimental cop-out to the ultimate cynical twist.

Paths of Glory was the film by which Stanley Kubrick entered the ranks of great directors, never to leave them.
