Jacob’s Ladder (1990)

Tim Robbins stars as a psychologically tormented Vietnam veteran in this suspense film. Director Adrian Lyne (“Fatal Attraction”) uses flashbacks and fantasies to tell the story of a man plagued by his prewar life and demons.

The movie serves up some provocative imagery, but is numbingly unengaging and delivers a punchless, copout ending. Also stars Danny Aiello and Jason Alexander. Rated R.
