The Jacket 2005

A psychological thriller about a military veteran who returns to his native Vermont suffering from bouts of amnesia. When he is accused of murder and lands in an asylum, a well-meaning doctor puts him on a heavy course of experimental drugs, restrains him in a jacket-like device, and locks him away in a body drawer of the basement morgue. The process sends him on a journey into the future, where he can foresee his death (but not who did it or how) in four day's time. Now the only question that matters is: can the woman he meets in the future save him? (read more)

Jack Starks, a Desert Storm veteran who was shot in the head and sent back to the states is wrongly accused of killing a police officer. He is sent to Alpine Groves, a mental institution where he undergoes experimental therapy at the hands of Dr. Becker. Said therapy is to be wrapped in a straitjacket, pumped full of drugs...

The Jacket Movie Review by AJ (5/12/2006)

Here's something that you're not going to hear often: The Jacket is a deceptively complex movie. With a chilling opening line ("I was 27 years old the first time I died."), you'd expect The Jacket to be open to all kinds of examination and analysis. And while it can definitely be debated thematically, spiritually, and...

The Jacket Movie Review by Andrea (4/14/2006)

I just finished watching this one not too long ago. I rented it because I hadn't seen Brody in anything else besides King Kong. I didn't move during it and that is always a pretty good sign. It was disturbing.. but it was a well put together film and creative. I can see myself watching it again. I liked him and Keira...
