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