The Jacket-DVD review
I was not to sure about this movie when I rented it. Adrien Brody?? Anyways the first few minutes of this flick was like an intense acid trip and little hard to grasp. After the initial mind warping the story starts to flow. Think Jacobs Ladder meets The Butterfly Effect married to 12 Monkeys addicted to Requiem for a Dream and maybe you will understand the ride this movie gives ya.
Anyway Jack Starks (Adrien Brody) is a Gulf War veteran who gets a nasty head wound. The result of certain events leads him to be institutionalized where Dr.Becker (Kris Kristofferson) performs experimental "PSYCHO" therapy involving a straight jacket and a morgue drawer. Jack becomes increasingly confused as he "travels" between the present and a surreal future in which he learns of his demise in 4 days. I won't spoil the rest for ya cause you should really watch this flick.
I rate "THE JACKET":
out of five stars.
