deux heures en apesanteur (1585)

Mr. Stone's control over his own screenplay is such that Platoon seems to slide into and out of crucial scenes without ever losing its distant cool. He doesn't telegraph emotions, nor does he stomp on them. The movie is a succession of found moments. It's less like a work that's been written than one that has been discovered, though, as we all probably know, screenplays aren't delivered by storks. This one is a major piece of work, as full of passion as it is of redeeming, scary irony.
Vincent Canby, 1986.

I think now, looking back, we did not fight the enemy; we fought ourselves. And the enemy was in us. The war is over for me now, but it will always be there [...]. But, be that as it may, those of us who did make it have an obligation to build again, to teach to others what we know, and to try with what's left of our lives to find a goodness and a meaning to this life.
