Jacob's Ladder (1990)

This is a really strange surreal pictures. It revolves around a Vietnam vet who is suffering from flashbacks of his first wife and son who died. He doesn't seem to have much of a grasp on reality, and things seem to get more disturbed and confused from there. The thing is, it's quite the wild ride and the film is an experience, but it's not one that could be made complete sense of I don't think. Everything isn't handed to us on a plate and it's not conventional horror where people are being bumped off or something, this is strictly psychological horror. Definitely recommended for someone wanting to interpret an interesting film.
