Shot from the screen: Platoon
Screenshot: Sgt. Elias, with his arms outstretched above his head
Shot from the scene: Left for dead by the cold Sgt. Barnes (Tom Berenger), who tells the platoon he has been killed in action, Sgt. Elias (Willem Dafoe) emerges from the jungle chased by numerous enemy soldiers. Helpless, his comrades can only watch from their departing helicopter as he reaches skyward in despair, is riddled with bullets and collapses to the ground in defeat. A powerful and emotional scene, enhanced by Barber's touching 'Adagio for Strings'
