Jarhead
2005
 
Jake Gyllenhaal stars as a fictionalized version of Marine Anthony Swofford, whose biting memoir about his real-life stint as a sniper in Operation Desert Storm serves as the inspiration for Sam Mendes's drama. But instead of combat, the film focuses on the long, lonely days spent at war, and the cynicism and caustic humor soldiers employ to deal with unbearable conditions and ever-present danger. Peter Sarsgaard and Jamie Foxx co-star.
Synopsis compliments of Netflix
Book, Drama, War
 
One of my favorite movies, It is really diffrent from other war movies, Ive probally watched it 10 or more times.
 
A solid and unusual war movie. I liked how it captured the insanity of war without actually showing the main characters firing a single shot.
 
This is based on the book Jarhead written by former Marine scout sniper Anthony Swofford. Based on true story, it gives a realistic description of the psychological effects war can have on someone. This movie also includes some humor as well.
