Jacob's Ladder (1990)★★★☆☆


I’m feeling less sleepy tonight (I caught up on sleep last night!) but I have very little to say about this one.

On the one hand, it’s got Tim Robbins and (an uncredited) Macaulay Culkin. On the other hand, it’s trying a bit too hard to be deep and artsy and ends up more disorienting and confusing than it needs to be.

The acting is understandably great but the movie itself is dark and bleak and really a bit pointless. Maybe the pointlessness is the point after all, but I guess that kind of thing just isn’t for me.
