Long before he catapulted to legendary-filmmaker status with 2001: A Space Odyssey and A Clockwork Orange — and way before he scarred that legacy somewhat by having Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman contemplate dark, dank corners in the overly murky Eyes Wide Shut — Stanley Kubrick directed Paths of Glory.

Set in World War I and starring Kirk Douglas as a French colonel who battles his superiors as often as he does the Germans, Paths of Glory is noteworthy for its pacifist position.
