Apocalypse Now; the Do Long Bridge Roach Scene
My favorite Scene from Apocalypse Now. Roach, the M79 grenade launcher gunner is awoken from a drug induced stupor to deal with a VC sapper. Cpt Willard watches in detached consideration while Roach, guided only by the sounds of the sapper's voice, drops an HE round on the VC's head.
What's most interesting is the last exchange between Cpt. Willard and Roach with the Cpt asking,"Do you know who's in charge here?". The unspoken, "it's me," after he says "yeah..." points to the fact that they are there on the Do Long bridge, on their own.
A classic movie, well worth including in your video library.
