Style and Cinematography

Paths of Glory is an intense war film that asks tough questions. When the military makes the terrible mistake to go ahead with an impossible mission and risk so many lives, the men are the ones who pay. Six are executed for the mission's failure.

Tough questions must be asked, as viewers watch the events unfold: Who should be held accountable for these decisions? Why are the men murdered? Why has Dax been ignored as he tries to stop the mission and represent the men?
