I love Full Metal Jacket but it's always been more because of the first half of the film.  Even then it would probably be between Full Metal Jacket and The Thin Red Line.



I'd also toss in The Battle of Algiers. Not a traditional war film, but if it counts, might be my favorite.

A few others I'd toss into this actually thinking about it even more (i.e. looking at my collection to jog my memory):


Army of Shadows

Johnny Got His Gun

Fires on the Plain


Sort of embarassing to admit, but I had never heard of Johnny Got His Gun until Metallica released the song and video for One.

finally someone mentioned Patton


Love war movies but have yet to see Army of Shadows.  I hear it's a great movie.  Sam?



It's great. Highly recommend checking it out. And while you're at it, not war movies, but the same director has made some other amazing movies: Le Samourai, Le Cercle Rouge, and Bob le Flambeur.

Saving Private Ryan is my favorite.  I remember when it came out the criticism was that the battle scenes were too real.  Another one that I like that definitely isn't in the same tier that wasn't meantioned is Hamburger Hill.  Them losing so many men going up the hill only to turn around and abandon it kind of summed up Vietnam.
