Full Metal Jacket Diary App
Stanley Kubrick was the quintessential elusive genius. His body of work is perhaps the most prolific filmography ever crafted. Renowned for his pursuit of artistic perfection, notorious for his obsessive privacy, few people could say they truly knew Kubrick. In 2005, Matthew Modine, star of Kubrick’s war masterpiece, Full Metal Jacket, released a limited edition print of his diary from the months spent filming the movie. The intimate portrait of the artist he paints provides an unparalleled depth into the man behind the films. Through the magic of technology, the book has been translated into an app for you iPad that brings the book to life in unprecedented new ways. The full text, Modine’s audio recording, wealth of pictures, and previously unreleased content make this a must own for any fan of Stanley Kubrick.
