Late in HBO's World War II miniseries "The Pacific," there's a scene in a muddy, devastated Okinawa village in which Pvt. Eugene B. Sledge (Joseph Mazzello) enters a hut to find a mortally wounded Japanese woman who, with trembling hands, reaches for the muzzle of his automatic weapon, begging him to finish her off. Instead, he lays his gun down in the straw and gathers her in his arms, gently stroking her face until she finally slips away. "His humanity comes back to him in that moment," says Mazzello of the battle-hardened young Marine he plays in the series.

Michael Cimino's "Sunchaser" whisks us into a sleek, trendy world of affluent Westside Los Angeles, where a wife can tell her husband, perhaps only half-kiddingly, that if he won't buy her that $2-million house then he doesn't really love her.
