Stanley Kubrick’s Paths of Glory is fighting its way home

Eureka Entertainment is to release PATHS OF GLORY, Stanley Kubrick’s First World War masterpiece starring Kirk Douglas. Presented on 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray for the first time ever in UK, as part of The Masters of Cinema Series. Available from 26 February 2024, the first print run of 2,000 copies will feature a Limited-Edition O-card Slipcase.

A shattering masterpiece by one of the medium’s greatest artists, Stanley Kubrick’s Paths of Glory announced the definitive arrival of a towering figure in cinema.

On the French front lines of World War I, after giving the order for an impossible and disastrous mission to capture a nearby stronghold, the upper ranks move to save face by having three randomly selected soldiers held and tried for cowardice under pain of death. Their leader, Colonel Dax, a former lawyer in civilian life, handles their defence against overwhelming odds.

A stylistically astonishing, emotionally overwhelming anti-war drama, Paths of Glory is one of the screen’s most brilliant condemnations of the power structures guiding warfare. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present a new Ultra-HD Blu-ray edition for the first time in the UK.
