Jarhead

May 12, 2006

I don't usually watch movies like this.  I don't like war and I don't like war movies.  I like Apocalypse now but I really don't think it's all that much about war.  I also liked Full Metal Jacket and I don't know why, it must be Kubrick's magic.  But I like Jake Gyllenhaal so I got Jarhead.

I'm not sure if I really got into the movie.  It seemed like the type of move you watch while you're eating dinner or putting together a puzzle.

The only scenes that really stuck with me were the burning oil fields.  It was just so amazing and so pretty.  The orange glow against the blackness.  I'm sure it was horrible to be in but it sure was beautiful to look at.  I think it kind've reminded me of a volcano or the surface of Venus, so deadly but yet what an exotic place to end up.

Somehow the burnt bodies and other scenes really didn't get to me at all.  Maybe I'm just a heartless bitch but it didn't make me feel anything.

Am I crazy or does Peter Sarsgaard look sort of like Kiefer Sutherland?
