The purpose of the film series is to encourage psychoanalytic dialogue with respect to creativity and movies. 


"Paths of Glory" is Stanley Kubrick's 1957 masterpiece on the random terror and insanity of war.  The film is based on an actual incident that occurred in the French Army during the First World War—an event so shocking and senseless as to be almost unbelieveable.  Kirk Douglas gives the most restrained and deeply moving performance of his long career, and the film itself has grown more profound  with every passing year and with every passing war.

—  Summary written by Dick Simons, M.D.


  1. Explain the psychological impact of war and deepen awareness that need for treatment may emerge years after the trauma.
  2. Apply empathy and understanding when working with soldiers and veterans.
  3. Explain how treating soldiers and veterans may be different than treating other patients as it relates to war, specifically PTSD, cowardly conduct, shell shock trauma and economic and family problems.
