He's not my friend, he's just someone I know
I cherish each and every frame of this beautiful movie. It is about
people, people we all know, who suffer a little in their life and have some
baggage to carry around. Just like all of us. Robert DeNiro, Ed Harris and
Kathy Baker breathe life into their portrayals and are all excellent, but
Harris is especially heartbreaking and therefore very real. You would swear
he really is a trucker who drinks so he won't have to feel anything. Baker
as his put-upon sister also has some delicate moments - when DeNiro gives
her flowers in one scene, it seems like she was never given flowers before
and probably wasn't. Very worthwhile..

An Afterwar Masterpiece
Jacknife is a masterpiece of the 80's. It's a movie that breaths
through amazing acting and a very interesting directing touch. In
Jacknife both lovers of European and American cinema can find things to
relate on. The screenplay is very compelling and full of beautiful
characters. Ed Harris is giving one of the greatest performances up to
date. He portrays his alcoholic hero superbly making us feel his broken
heart in each line, in each move. Robert De Niro makes us once again
think of him as one of the greatest actors of all time in one of the
simplest but also most realistic performances in his career. Jacknife
is never getting boring as it shows its heroes clear of any typical
Hollywood's typical character elements. After the war none is a hero.
Everybody is a loser, and this movie is about that simple truth. None
can mend up his pieces after a war, just like the heroes of this movie.
Jacknife is about the diseases of the soul that war creates. Simply
