Jacob's Ladder

Jacob's Ladder

A film by Adrian Lyne

USA, 1990, 117'

After returning home from the Vietnam War, veteran Jacob Singer struggles to maintain his sanity. Plagued by hallucinations and flashbacks, Singer rapidly falls apart as the world and people around him morph and twist into disturbing images. His girlfriend, Jezzie, and ex-wife, Sarah, try to help, but to little avail. Singer seems to slowly descend into madness. Directed by Adrian Lyne, with a filmography comprising such 1980s blockbusters as “Flashdance” and “Fatal Attraction”, “Jacob’s Ladder” resorts to in-camera effects to achieve its hellish atmosphere, drawing inspiration from artists such as Francis Bacon and H.R. Giger. Its famous twist is even more remarkable due to it being perfectly consistent with the plot.
