STARRING: Tim Robbins, Elizabeth Pena, Danny Aiello, Matt Craven, Macaulay Culkin

1990, 113 Minutes, Directed by: Adrian Lynne

Description: Vietnam veteran Jacob Singer (Tim Robbins) thinks he is going insane. Or worse. When his nightmares begin spilling into his waking hours, Jacob believes he is experiencing the aftereffects of a powerful drug tested on him during Vietnam. Or perhaps his posttraumatic stress disorder is worse than most. Whatever is happening to him, it is not good.

Adrian (Flashdance, Fatal Attraction) Lynne surprises with this excellent film about . . .

But I wouldn't want to spoil it. The film has a surprise ending that will keep audiences talking afterwards. Well-written, a visual sense that borrows from both Francis Bacon, Kafka and Angel Heart, the film's biggest asset however is Tim Robbins who gives one of his best performances ever.

If you're squeamish, stay away. But you risk missing a great film.
