Obscure Movie Night 101: The Jacket


The Jacket (2006)

After miraculously recovering from a bullet wound to the head, Gulf War veteran Jack Starks (Adrien Brody) returns to Vermont in 1992, suffering from periods of amnesia. While traveling, he sees a young girl, Jackie, and her mother in despair from a broken down truck, he helps them and moves on. A man driving along the same highway gives Jack a ride and they get pulled over by the police. Suddenly Starks is found on the deserted roadside with a dead policeman, the murder weapon, and a slug from the policeman’s gun in Starks’ body. Although he testifies there was someone else at the scene, his amnesia makes him unbelievable. Starks is found not guilty by reason of insanity, and is incarcerated in a mental institution. – Wikipedia

I didn’t like this move for the first 10 minutes, then it really took hold and pulled me in. Now I’m a fan. See it. -QJ
