Jacob's Ladder is a psychological thriller about a Vietnam vet whose life unravels before our eyes in a psychedelic and terrifying way. Tim Robbins plays Jacob, whose daily life as a postal worker becomes increasingly delusional. Determined to understand why, Jacob meets other vets who are experiencing the same hallucinations, including one who claims he can cure him. Director Adrian Lyne (Fatal Attraction) leads the film through many startling plot twists, and delivers a political message at the same time. A film you will never forget.
