Jacob's Ladder -- A movie you can't afford to pass up
"If you're frightened of dying, and you're holding on, you'll see devils tearing your life away. If you've made your peace, then the devils are really angels, freeing you from the Earth..."
'Jacob's Ladder' is a true masterpiece. I'd heard of this in the past, but never actually watched it. I regretted not watching this earlier. Every second of this movie kept me on the edge of my seat. "Jacob's Ladder" is a psychological thriller, about the Vietnam War. You can't find a more interesting and thrilling feature that is better than this. It is tragic, dark and quite disturbing. I enjoyed this movie a lot, and I hope you do too. So please, watch this movie. You WILL love every second of it.
