Reseñas críticas

Underpinning Rubin’s approach to the story is the Bardo Thodol (Tibetan Book of the Dead), a lesson for human consciousness in the moments after death: it is revealed at the end that Jacob has died on the slab in Vietnam, felled by the bayonet of one of his own men, rendered berserk by the hallucinogens—and all the subsequent action was a depiction of his soul in a liminal state. Preposterous (and even offensive) as this might seem, the film earns it in spades

A radical experiment in genre mixing from the unlikely team of director Adrian Lyne (FLASHDANCE) and writer Bruce Joel Rubin (GHOST), it is, like the similarly cryptic and paranoid MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE (1962), a masterpiece that transcends any auteurist interpretation: Arguably, its real author is the American subconscious. It’s also a beautifully acted film, something one rarely says of horror movies.
