Platoon is remembered for the striking realism with which it recreated the Vietnam War from the viewpoint of the U.S. soldier. At stark contrast are the story's two protagonists, played by Tom Berenger and Willem Dafoe, the latter at peace with himself despite the hostilities around him, the former representing the corruption of ideals that defined American participation in the war. The film established Oliver Stone as a major director and boosted the careers of several cast members, including Charlie Sheen, Forest Whitaker, and Johnny Depp. Delivering as the favorite at the Oscars, Platoon took four statues in the seven categories in which it was nominated, including one for Stone and for Best Picture.
