Following an extended tour of duty in the Middle East, a veteran returns home only to face new enemy. Battling insomnia & undiagnosed post traumatic stress disorder, he finds a job as a projectionist working the night shift at a decrepit theater. As he struggles to adapt to civilian life, he quickly finds himself tangled in an inescapable web of seduction, addiction, & violence. His disdain for those around him reaches a boiling point and he embarks on a new war against society, vowing to take drastic action against it in an attempt to defend the country he loves.

At first is saw just a 4,5 rating so my expectations where not too high, but after seeing it, i was really surprised by this movie. Although it's in black and white, in my opinion it makes it even greater because the makers didn't focus on the quality of the movie and other bullshit but it's all about the story that makes you realize a lot of things. I wont spoil any details so all i can say to people is just, to take some time and watch this movie. My deepest respect for all the people fighting for our freedom and risk their lives, as well in combat as in the life after that. People should see this movie so those men and women get the respect which they deserve. It shows in a great way, the word that we live in and what soldiers give for their country.

I say, just watch it yourself and you'll understand why i said all those things.
