Jarhead Directed by Sam Mendes

Critics reviews

Mendes has been smart enough to hire some of the best sound and image people in the business for each of his features, including the late Conrad Hall as cinematographer on American Beauty and Road to Perdition and Walter Murch (sound designer and editor of Apocalypse Now) as editor on Jarhead. But he hasn’t been smart enough to transcend the ideological confusions of his scripts; instead he uses his inventiveness and the talents of others to distract us from those confusions.
