Some scenes in films that really pull you on? Y'know, that you'll remember for the rest of your life.
There's loads for me, but one that sticks out is in Velvet Goldmine, when the main character, as a teenager, is watching Brian Slade and Curt Wild on stage, two wild and untamed rock stars, and he jumps up, in a fit of excitement, desperation and rage, and shouts towards his parents, 'That's me, that is! That's me! That's me!'
Its kind of a worrying scene, but like.. I've been there, you know? And holding that mentality.
As well as that, there's a scene in Christiane F, where the main character, now a burnt-out 14 year old junkie-prostitute, crawling around the subway, watching all the dying sparrows like herself, standing around, their eyes black with deprivation and their skin decomposing in their addiction, and she's asking everyone where Babsie is. And she doesn't find her...

Taxi Driver - the "You talking to me?" scene. It's just watching a character come out of himself, someone previously so tentative show's this disturbed side to himself.
The Deer Hunter - the russian roulette scene. The tension is just ... wow.
Léon - the scene where Léon opens his door to Matilda and her face is illuminated and she looks kind of angelic. It's such a contrast and at the same time, so in tune with, the rest of the movie.1
