Would that be 1983 sci-fi classic Brainstorm?

As a hint: This is not one of the significant characters. He is playing taps for a character who had more screen time in the film that died in Vietnam.

Sorry I haven't been back sooner to post a follow up pic.


This is from a pivotal point in the movie.

Yes it is Richard Dreyfuss.

But it is not actually a war/Vietnam movie. That was just a point in the movie that made an impact on Dreyfuss' character. The compass came in later to signify the recognition of that change in his character by another who influenced him.

Sorry, don''t have another pic on my laptop at the moment.

I've only seen it once, but could it be "Mr. Holland's Opus"?
