One of the greatest...,
This review is from: Jacob's Ladder [DVD]  (DVD)
Hard to add anything to whats already been said by previous reviewers. This film is so unmissable but a hard journey to take as our hero, Jacob Singer, descends the ladder. He ends up suffering so much that at the movie end we, the audience, are mentally exhausted for him. Yet we so care about him, he's a really decent human being. I have been almost obsessive about this film for 12.5 years now and I hope it is reaching a wider more open-minded audience than back in 1990. The problem with this version is that there are no extras.....of all the DVD's this one requires extras (hence only 4 stars). I got the US version with all the brilliant extras (Adrian Lynne film audio, deleted scenes, documentary etc)and it helps pull the movie together more. PS - I have watched this movie 6 times now and I got emotional every time...one of the greatest.
