While filming Stanley Kubrick’s legendary war movie Full Metal Jacket, actor Matthew Modine documented the whole process with a borrowed medium-format camera and a richly detailed diary. To mark the 25th anniversary of the film, he has released a Kickstarter-funded iPad app that offers a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the Kubrick classic. (If you’ve never seen the movie, please stop what you’re doing and go watch it.) As Private James T. “Joker” Davis, Modine was the star of the film, and he’s the star of Full Metal Jacket Diary, too.
