This is a very strange but very worthwhile film. If you can sit through the parts that seem to make no sense, the end will explain everything. The finale is both sad and uplifting at the same time. I found the dual narrative structure a little hard to follow at first, but it was great once I figured it out. While not exactly shocking, the ending may surprise you, and it will totally change your view of the story. I highly recommend this to fans of The Sixth Sense.

I remember watching this movie when it came out in 1990, and being very confused. I only watched the movie, instead of viewing the details and listening to the dialogue. It took a couple of viewings, and television interview with the Director, for me to finally "get it". The basic plot is about a Vietnam veteran who is experiencing various visions of demons and other strange phenomena. Are the visions reality, or did the US government experiment on some of our US soldiers fighting in Vietnam? Hmm, would our government do that in the movies? The movie start off in Vietnam, then fast forwards to the present, and then flashes back to Vietnam at times throughout the movie. I really enjoyed the acting of Elizabeth Pena and Danny Aiello. I really like Danny, and wish there were more scenes of him in the movie. Ving Rhames is also in the movie, as one of Tim Robbins Vietnam buddies, and Jason Alexander of Seinfeld, as a lawyer. I would recommend a couple of viewings, as you will miss things the first time. All in all, I really enjoyed the movie, and learned to appreciate the ending. I know some people do not like it, but I liked the "choice" that Jacob Singer makes on where he ultimately goes!
