Know That Movie?
I don’t even want you to try and guess it or IMDB this movie, because I love this film in particular so much that I’ll tell you exactly what it is:
This is a very special movie and won’t be as easy to find like most. Definitely Underrated.
Jacob Singer is a traumatized Vietnam War veteran suffering distressful flashbacks and disturbed visions. There is tension between what he knows and what he interprets his life as being.
That may seem like a very cryptic description of what this film is about, but I can’t really begin to explain its spiritual/drug induced/mind altered/life and death scenario; but it is a very exceptional piece of storytelling. Tim Robbins at his best.
You will either understand Jacob’s inner turmoil, or you won’t. A great film either way.
Watch Jacobs Ladder and tell me your thoughts won’t you?
