This classic cult film is directed by Oliver Stone and was released in 1985. It’s based on Stones own experiences. The film won four Oscars, including Best Picture. In this war depiction, we follow the young soldier Chris (Charlie Sheen) who goes to Vietnam in 1967. Through his eyes, we see the horrible existence in Vietnam's jungle. Chris has two officers, Sgt. Barnes (Tom Berenger) och Sgt. Elias (William Dafoe), who can distinguish the war within them and the war against the outer enemy, which the naive Chris can’t handle. He is strongly influenced by his inner emotional storm, his fear, and physical fatigue as the war arouses.
