Paths Of Glory is always hailed as a great anti-war film, and visually it does make a statement about the horrors of war, showing the broken and wounded in the trenches and the wholesale, senseless slaughter on the battlefield. But, even more than that, it is an anti-military film, and, by extension, an indictment of all hierarchical systems which sacrifice human beings for expediency. (Anthony Ambrogio)
