Jacob's Ladder
Director: Adrian Lyne
Cast: Tim Robbins, Elizabeth Pena, Danny Aiello, Pruitt Taylor Vince, Matt Craven, Jason Alexander

Jacob Singer is a Vietnam veteran who suffers from odd hallucinations. Did something happen to him and his comrades during the war or what is going on? Bruce Joel Rubin's bleak and unpredictable story keeps you in its clutches until the end, and then leaves you unsettled. Adrian Lyne is known for vacuous blockbusters, and this is his first proper film.
