Profile of The Jacket

The Jacket can be described as stylized, atmospheric, and mind bending. The plot revolves around destiny, time travel, and mental instability. The main genres are drama, thriller, and sci-fi. In terms of style, The Jacket is surreal. In approach, it is fantastical and serious. It is set, at least in part, in a mental institution. The Jacket takes place in the 1990s and in contemporary times. The soundtrack is electronica. It is well suited for a boys' night. Note that The Jacket involves violent content.

Critics Reviews

USA Today
The Jacket is a confused attempt at headiness that feels like a poor man's "Memento."
Full review
by: Claudia Puig
Entertainment Weekly
Director John Maybury has a feel for shock rhythms, and he's skillful at keeping you guessing, but after a while you want your questions to cohere into compelling answers, and in The Jacket they don't, quite.

Nice movie about time travel
Its a different time travel movie that tell more about life than about time travel itself. The screenplay is well written and the direction is good.

A great movie!
A smart movie about the possibilities of time travel, although it's not hyped like many others. It stays very true to its fictional world. Refers to concepts in time travel but speaks to the viewer, isn't obscure. Acting is very good and the movie's...
