—Albert Camus, The Myth of Sisyphus According to French philosopher Albert
Camus, our most important task is not to discover the meaning of life but to
recognize that it is, in fact, meaningless. Camus calls this human condition the
absurd, the fact that although we long for clarity and meaning in our lives, none is
given. Stanley Kubrick was quite taken with existentialism in general, but it is
Camus' philosophy that we see most prominently in two of his war films that are
studies in how ...

Vietnam War, Lee's subversion of individual heroic violence emerges as a
critique of American patriotic militarism. In these two films, then, violence
functions as an obstacle to self-realization, meaningful relationships, and a
hopeful future. Lee philosophizes that nonviolence is a more human and more
