Live Poll: Scenes or Sequences Where Characters Accept Their Death

Intro:

In some movies characters agree to be killed or kill themselves because of his/her/* reasons, which force them to do so. No matter which kind of reason it is, the death is free chosen at the end. To make sequences like these authentically, it needs quiet good acting.

Which of these sequences was done best by all involved actors? (The descriptions are covered with spoiler bars for not spoiling you.)

Discuss here.

If you think of suicide, please find medical help. Live is too short to waste.

Suggestions:

Characters like in my examples that make clear it's ok to die here and now. Movies, no tv-series. Animated ok, no documentations. No real-life, just fictitious caracters. No plain self-murderers, they must be forced by circumstances like being hunt, or irreversible and painful deseases like cancer or war injuries. Something that puts them into a place they can't quit. Please give me an IMDb-Link to the movie, to the character and a description for the option. Better not below a rating of 6/10. In special cases I do amens to that.

Breu, there are some concerns about the poll title being too grim, specially with the line "beg to be killed".

Perhaps it would be best to remove it and since you are asking for the performance rather than the character change it for something like "Death Acceptance Scenes" or "Scenes Where Characters Accept Their Death".

Hopefully someone with better English than Me can suggest something better.

@Pencho15 

Hi, Pencho. Thank you for telling me. I knew before that the title sounds drastic. I've chosen it to make clear what this poll is about and to find the right grammar. I didn't change it since then, because no one comlainted about it and I must admit that I wondered a little - it seemed to be accepted. The problem about it is, that some of the characters really forced other characters to kill them. That's far more than just accepting. But in both cases it's a consciously act of their own will. On the other hand, I'll accept the changes. Maybe you have an idea to formulate it better. If not, I'll take your second formulation and modify it a bit to ... Scenes and Sequences ... Is that ok? Anyway it's ok for me, when it goes live. That's honor enough.

Please change "Poll Suggestion" to "Live Poll" in the discussion thread title and change the settings so that it appears under "Praise" now, rather than "Idea."
