Jarhead (film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1645 words)
Jarhead is a 2005 film starring Jake Gyllenhaal as U.S. Marine Anthony Swofford, and is based on Swofford's 2003 Gulf War memoir Jarhead: A Marine's Chronicle of the Gulf War and Other Battles.
The title is based on a semi-derogatory slang, jarhead, used for Marines, and sometimes by Marines themselves.
The single disc standard version has been included with a goodie protective silver casing, engraved on the front is the shape of a dog tag with the words "Jarhead" written on it.
DVD Verdict Review - Jarhead (2188 words)
Jarhead didn't do huge box office domestically, and it was passed over by the Academy and other organizations for major award nominations.
Jarhead chronicles the tour of duty of Anthony Swofford (Jake Gyllenhaal, Donnie Darko) as he enlists in the Marines in the early '90s just as the Gulf War heats up.
Jarhead deals with the exasperatingly mundane small details of doing menial tasks, training to be a sniper, and what soldiers do in their downtime.
