What are the best scenes or characters that just flip their lids, (for whatever the reason)?

My motivation for this is I'm watching Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

Dreyfus just loses it, when he's tearing apart his house and home and starts tossing bricks, branches and whatever he can find through his little kitchen window all for the purpose of making huge scaled down model of Devil's Tower in his living room.

Classic scene.

Another one of my favorites is when Michael Douglas, as William Foster in Falling Down, just snaps one day in a traffic jam and goes about the rest of his day going off in a way 99% of us can relate to and probably have wanted to. Classic lines from that one Duval screaming "D- fense" and Douglas beating up the thugs that try to mug him "you forgot my briefcase"

How about John Nash (Russell Crowe), throughout the ENTIRE movie A Beautiful Mind?

Or Mel Gibson's character after his son gets shot and then throughout the entire movie in The Patriot?

Or Braveheart or Gladiator by those two?

Or Mel Gibson in any episode of south park that he appears in?

Haha. The list goes on with those two.

I agree on The Shining, top notch, I cannot speak on The Taxi Driver.

Ray Milland in "Lost Weekend" when he is looking for his hidden bottle in the apartment also when he robs the liquor store saying something tho the effect that ...I am walkin out of here with that liqor one way or the other. Classic B/W stuff.

Also Gene Wilder in "Young Frankenstein" when the monster doesn't rouse to life...and his counterpart in "Frankenstein" when he does.
