Uitkijk Specials – Enfants Terribles: Paths of Glory

28 February - Filmtheater de Uitkijk, Amsterdam
21:00 - €11 - Free for members

We’ve teamed up with the most romantic movie theater of Amsterdam, Filmtheater de Uitkijk. Aside from their assorted agenda, the entirely student-run cinema curates bimonthly ‘specials’; series of movies, linked through a specific theme. And in addition, they screen a classic picture every month! Subbacultcha members can attend selected screenings of the specials and classics for free.

This month’s special is Enfants Terribles. This curated selection of films wants to explore films a series of films involving controversial filmmakers and/or films that Uitkijk feels still provide some food for thought.

In Paths of Glory, Kubrick uses the trench warfare of 1914-1918 to illuminate the absurdity of war. In no more than 88 minutes, Kubrick tells a razor-sharp story about French general Mireau who wants three of his own soldiers shot dead to mask his own fatal error of judgement. Officer Dax, played by Kirk Douglas, then acts as the three soldiers’ lawyer.

Based on the novel by Humphrey Cobb and filmed by Georg Krause, we see Kubrick at his most humanistic. Every inch of this film is filled with a powerful desire for justice and celebrates the search for truth. Paths of Glory shows evidence of the unwavering humanity and constancy of the human spirit.

Subbacultcha members can attend the screening of Paths of Glory for free. There are limited spots available. One can make a reservation by sending an e-mail to, citing ‘Paths of Glory’ in the mail. Please show your membership card at the box office.
