Maybury is an artist in addition to a director and it's clear that he has an eye for colour, which he uses cleverly to reinforce emotion.

A solid attempt to wrestle with some big questions. The cast is exemplary and the premise and script are well reasoned and artful. But it doesn't quite come together.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

As incoherent as it is enjoyable, The Jacket hits the marks that it set out to, yet leaves the audience a bit cold with its squeaky clean ending.

Ambitious-verging-on-pretentious screenplay adroitly lensed by a director with impressive formal command.

Part of the fun with twisty time-travel movies is in trying to figure out what's going on and The Jacket delivers nicely on that score, keeping you guessing till the end.

Ultimately it doesn't amount to much, but like Starks' drug-induced trip, The Jacket is about the journey not the destination.

It doesn't really hold together on a logical level, but it's fascinating and powerfully emotional.

I wouldn't go as far to say that The Jacket is the best film of 2005 so far, but it's definitely worth checking out instead of some of the garbage that's out there.

It's an apt description of how war, waged by the Organization for the Organized, works on its warriors, victims and heroes both.
