Sam Mendes (American Beauty) adapts former Marine Anthony Swofford's unflinching, blackly comic chronicle of life on the ground during Operation Desert Storm. Jake Gyllenhaal, Chris Cooper, Jamie Foxx and Peter Sarsgaard are among the impressive cast. This blisteringly funny examination of modern warfare largely sidesteps issues of politics, emerging as a slow-moving, but dizzyingly smart and visceral combination of M*A*S*H* and Full Metal Jacket. 123 minutes R.
