Reviews:

Way before Shyamalan came on board, Adrian Lyne had blown the collective consciousness!
One “reviewer” here wrote (I presume) in all seriousness “Like a bad dream – impossible to understand!” That being the case, I can only describe his subsequent attempt to compile a review as “gutsy” in the extreme.

I believe JACOB’S LADDER is one of the 10 best films ever made. It is NOT impossible to understand…you merely have to listen and interpret! For those without the ability to effect the latter…just listen! Danny Aiello’s character, Louis the chiropracter lays it out for you – word for word. I think it is the best part Aiello ever had, small one though it is in terms of screen time. Integral to a collective grasp of this great and disturbing film however is the need to tie-in the relationship between Jacob the individual, the biblical “Jacob’s Ladder” itself and the relevance of “The Ladder” as explained (and seemingly forgotten by most everybody) by the runty chemical weapons boffin at the near conclusion of the film.

To those who view the ending as “rushed,” “unsatisfying,” “obscure” even “dumb” as I recall, I would merely suggest you watch it again and take into account the likelihood is, that it is in fact YOU that has missed what has been so cleverly set out for you. SIGNS was equally misunderstood by the majority of people that even liked it – there never WERE any aliens!

JACOB’S LADDER is Robbins’ greatest film – Lyne’s too. The last few minutes are amongst the most emotional and uplifting scenes I have ever seen since the “star child” in 2001 A SPACE ODYSSEY. Culkin was the perfect choice!

I saw this movie in a near deserted theater in Times Square the week it came out. At the conclusion of this particular late show I noticed an old man sitting some two rows away to my left, absorbed in his thoughts. Having to walk past him to gain the exit I noticed tears in his eyes. He looked up as I approached. After studying me for a moment all he said to me was “You understood didn’t you?” I said, “Yes I understood!” He replied softly…”You’re very lucky!”

Good, but it’s all been done before.
Postal worker Jacob Singer (Tim Robbins) thinks he is losing his grip on reality, suffering from terrifying hallucinations and flashbacks. As he delves into the mystery behind his mental anguish, he unravels a conspiracy concerning his days serving in Vietnam.

The way I see it, Jacob’s Ladder can be interpreted in one of two ways:

A) In his dying moments, soldier Jacob – his brain still affected by the hallucinatory chemical agent unleashed by his own side -conjures up a world where his past collides with a bizarre imaginary future where demons haunt his every move. As he passes away, Jacob finds contentment, reunited in his mind with his dead son Gabe (Macauley Culkin).

or

B) Jacob is already dead, trapped in a purgatory inhabited by monsters, where he must try and escape his torment, guided by an angel (his chiropractor, played by Danny Aiello).

Both explanations are valid, but unfortunately, neither is all that original, the first having already been done in the excellent 1961 French short Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge (screened in the United States as an episode of The Twilight Zone), and the latter in cult classic Carnival of Souls (1962).

Director Adrian Lyne conducts matters with style, presenting some truly unsettling imagery using a variety of impressive (and oft-imitated) film-making techniques, but his treatment is also rather blunt at times, his film practically spelling out the ending – that Jacob is dead/dying – at several junctures. At 113 minutes, the film is also way too drawn out: as ‘Occurrence at…’ proved, such a story can be wrapped up in far less time (even Carnival of Souls, at 84 minutes, seemed too long).

6/10, plus a bonus point for lovely Elizabeth Peña as Jacob’s sexy girlfriend Jezzie, whose presence helped the time pass a little easier.
