I do love this film for its existential life and death focus and its twist. Also Tim Robbins, who had such a streak of great films in the late 80s and 90s (not so much later, sadly.) but I find it too traumatic to rewatch this film on a regular basis, it's likely to give me nightmares.
It's a bit of interesting trivia that Macaulay Culkin was featured in the film's marketing at the time almost as much as Tim Robbins, because he was so famous off the back of Home Alone, despite being in Jacob's Ladder for just one scene at the end (which he filmed before Home Alone). That does date this film a bit.
Army Officer: Mr. Singer. What an appropriate name for a man who can't keep his mouth shut.
