The Jacket (2005) [USA]

Movies that don't quite meet the requirements to be on-topic for FLM, maybe because the actors are too old or screen time is too small.

The film centers on a wounded Gulf war veteran who returns to his native Vermont suffering from bouts of amnesia. He is hitching and gets picked up by a stranger, things go pear shaped when a cop pulls them over and is murdered by the stranger. The vet. is wrongly accused of killing the cop and lands up in an asylum. A quack doctor prescribes a course of experimental therapy, restraining him in a heavy duty straight jacket-like device, and locks him away in a body drawer of the basement morgue. During course of his treatment he gets flashbacks and visions of his future , where he can foresee he is to die in four days time. The catch is he doesn't know how. Thus commences the classic race against time. Written by Austin4577@aol.com
The inhuman tortures that an inmate of a lunatic asylum suffers after he antagonises the doctor in charge break his connection with reality and he wanders through various places and events at various times. Not everything in this film will make sense, nor is everything in explainable order; this adds to the effect the director wants to achieve. Great film; very watchable.

FLM interest: Laura Marano http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1404824/ She plays a little girl in some of the flashbacks, who reappears (grown up) as Adrien Brody's love interest (Keira Knightley).
