Pla­toon

The Western Star - - LIFE | TV GUIDE -

Thurs­day, sbs, 2am, MA15+ (1986)

It’s la­belled a war film, but you’ll be un­likely to ever find a film more anti war. A fine cast – with a young Char­lie Sheen putting in the per­for­mance of his ca­reer – takes us through the hor­rors of the Viet­nam War, as seen through the ever-widen­ing eyes of a pla­toon of draftees. The movie that made di­rec­tor Oliver Stone’s name is a gut-wrench­ing ride, for the sol­diers and view­ers.
