Matthew Modine and Stanley Kubrick on the set of Full Metal Jacket.
"He’s probably the most heartfelt person I ever met. It’s hard for him, being from the Bronx, with that neighborhood mentality, and he tries to cover it up. Right underneath that veneer is a very loving, conscientious man, who doesn’t like pain, who doesn’t like to see human suffering or animals suffering. I was really surprised by the man." — Matthew Modine
"Matthew Modine was perfect for the part. He’s a combination of sensitivity and macho virility. If Gary Cooper and Henry Fonda had a baby—it would be Matthew Modine." — Stanley Kubrick

"The lasting and ultimately most important reputation of a film is not based on reviews, but on what, if anything, people say about it over the years, and on how much affection for it they have."

Stanley Kubrick (July 26, 1928 – March 7, 1999)
