Paths of Glory is a 1957 anti-war film, co-written and directed by Stanley Kubrick. Set during World War 1, the film stars Kirk Douglas. He plays the commanding officer of French soldiers who refuse to continue a suicidal attack. After the battle, Dax attempts to defend his soldiers against charges of cowardice.

Transcript from ‘Paths Of Glory’ podcast

Martin – Kubrick was 28 years old when he made this and the film was made in 1957. It looks like it was made for me, even though it’s in black and white, in the seventies or eighties. The quality of the film is because Kubrick was a master with his lenses. He knew everything about cameras and cinematography but when you watch it, going through the trenches using steady-cam and stuff like that, he was the pioneer of that type of filming.
