FULL METAL JACKET DIARY (FMJD) has been called an "appumentary" by Entertainment Weekly, “something Stanley Kubrick would be proud of" by Wired Magazine, and named "iPad App of the Week” by Gizmodo. It was selected as one of the "Best Book Apps of 2012" by Kirkus Book Reviews, won the "Best App" award at the 2013 New Media Film Festival, and received the "Best Mobile Media Programming" Award of Merit from The Accolade Competition.
"In 1985, Stanley Kubrick encouraged me to take photos and keep a journal while playing the lead role of Pvt. Joker on the set of FULL METAL JACKET. In 2005, I published a limited edition book of my photos and diary. This app is based on that book; enriched and reimagined as an interactive, audiovisual experience. I hope you enjoy it!" – Matthew Modine

Ratings and Reviews
What a find!
I was listening to Modine on a podcast and he mentioned this app. So glad I remembered long enough to track it down. Worth five times the price. I absorbed it in one very long sitting. Now I have to find time to rewatch the film. Well done Matthew!
A must for any Modine AND Kubrick fan!
I distinctly recall seeing FMJ in its original run, and it was my first Kubrick in-theater moviegoing experience. Experiencing Matthew’s journey through the making of Kubrick’s last masterpiece (I cannot count Eyes Wide Shut) is a work of multimedia art in its own right.
Keeps on Giving
This is an amazing look at movie making. Every time I open this app it gives me another snippet or image that brings me into the world of movie-making. A gem just like the movie
