Go Watch a Movie: Jarhead

January 18, 2011 § Leave a comment

I’m not doing this on purpose. Suggesting another Peter Sarsgaard movie. I swear, it’s a total accident.

Jarhead. This movie follows a young man who enters the military during the Iraqi war and becomes a U.S. Marine Corps sniper. A stirring performance by Jake Gyllenhaal, he shows the struggles of leaving home, family, significant others and consuming your entire being with the military life. Jarhead combines music and cinematography just beautifully. This film will leave you frightened, saddened, yet still having a sense of love and camaraderie. Take 123  minutes out of your life and put this on your television (available through Netflix instantly on your computer or Wii).
