I was profoundly moved by "Testament". There's a scene where Jane Alexander's character is watching her youngest child burn in a mass cremation. She falls wailing to her knees, and scoops up handfuls of poisoned earth, screaming rage at the "leaders" who brought this upon everyone.

It deserves to be an iconic scene in movies. Like "STELLA!!!" or "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn."
