Video: Jacob's Ladder (1990) - Official Trailer
excerpt from Jacob's Ladder BY ROGER EBERT / November 2, 1990
This movie left me reeling with turmoil and confusion, with feelings of sadness and despair. Those are the notes it strives for.
"Jacob's Ladder" enters into the hallucinations of a desperate mind, and lives there. It evokes a paranoid-schizophrenic state as effectively as any film I have ever seen. Despite an ending that is intended as victorious, the movie is a thoroughly painful and depressing experience - but, it must be said, one that has been powerfully written, directed and acted.
