_platoon-jay-shaw1Now take a gander at Johnny Dombrowski’s awesome contribution.  Here is what he had to say about the movie.

Platoon is one of a few unique examples in the war movie genre. It not only focuses on the physical affects of war but also the mental- the cerebral or visceral. Where the worst enemy is not the Vietnamese but rather the horrors of losing one’s self in that kind of environment. Losing all hope and even all sense of what it means to be human or humane. The first casualty of war is innocence.

With that, the jungle becomes this incredibly strong and overwhelming symbol of chaos and insanity. A place with no reason, no logic, no chance of escape. Surrounding Taylor on all sides, it changes in to this encroaching and claustrophobic entity. It’s eats away any moral idea of himself and of mankind in general, and exposes what people are really capable of. The jungle is the most powerful and frightening character in the film. Turning men in to monsters, or worse, men in to nothing at all.
