Last night Tjerk and I watched the classic Platoon (1986), which is a "gritty and emotional look at the lives of a platoon of American soldiers as they patrol, fight and die in the jungles of Vietnam as seen through the perspective of a young recruit. Two veteran sergeants clash when one of them precipitates a massacre of villagers. The first movie in Vietnam veteran Oliver Stone's Vietnam trilogy." I hadn't seen it in a few years and noticed that I was able to appreciate it even more now, than a few years ago. The movie features the beautiful Adagio for Strings (by Samuel Barber and George Delerue), which I played just before I fell asleep. See also the Platoon page at HistoryInFilm.com.
