After just one watch I couldnt go as far as calling this a total favorite of mine, but now after a rewatch, it does begin to climb slowly up the ladder of all time personal picks.
Jacob's Ladder somehow manages to be the kind of film where the ending is supposed to change everything, but re-watching the film does not provide a sense of added depth or reductive inconsistency so much as...weightlessness.
