Aggressive-Voice at the Movies

What a wonderful surprise it was for me to learn that "The Jacket" is currently the best movie of 2005. While it's only March, of course, I had little hopes for this mind-bending drama.

Both Adrien Brody and Keira Knightley excel in a story about a Gulf War veteran who is institutionalized for killing a cop, and can see into the future when placed inside a morgue drawer (it's how Hollywood doctors do "therapy"). After learning of his death just days away, Jack Starks (Brody) elicits the help of a young woman (Knightley) to the find the cause of his impending demise.

This is the film "The Butterfly Effect" wished it could be.

My review here.
