Jacob's Ladder Reviews
together - nothings add to me , simple as that.
the film is full of surreal images and scary stuff
our reality begins to get questioned as well going from one thing to the next
once it's revealed what's causing this madness it's simple enough although it doesn't raise the bar for the film entirely
still, Tim Robbins wonderfully plays a Vietnam vet on the verge of insanity and trying to find out what it is
once more war does terrible things to people and some things we don't even remember what scares us the most
all kinds of demons emerge from what we've suffered and what we've lost
What a trip.
Jacob [Tim Robbins] plays a Vietnam veteran who suffers from hallucinative imagination - and nightmarish flashback of last time getting injured at the Vietnam-war battle. These ghastly images open up twisted-thread.
Film is nowhere near being called as 'horror' (not even psychological aspect of it qualify it to be referred as horror). Film's central theme is inspired from the real-incident of usage of hallucinative medicines in the Vietnam-war by the Pentagon (an allegation that was denied by Pentagon). Good acting, soothing music-score!
