'Jarhead' is a 2005 film based on U.S. Marine Anthony Swofford's 2003 Gulf War memoir of the same name, starring Jake Gyllenhaal as Swofford. The title comes from the slang term used to refer to U.S. Marines (sometimes by Marines themselves). The film was directed by Academy Award-winner Sam Mendes, and co-stars Jamie Foxx, Peter Sarsgaard, and Chris Cooper.

Jarhead (film) Video

Clyde Shelton (Gerard Butler) is an upstanding family man whose wife and daughter are brutally murdered during a home invasion. When the killers are caught, Nick Rice (Jamie Foxx), a hotshot young Philadelphia prosecutor, is assigned to the case. Over his objections, Nick is forced by his boss to offer one of the suspects a light sentence in exchange for testifying against his accomplice. Fast forward ten years. The man who got away with murder is found dead and Clyde Shelton coolly admits his guilt. Then he issues a warning to Nick: Either fix the flawed justice system that failed his family, or key players in the trial will die. Soon Shelton follows through on his threats, orchestrating from his jail cell a string of spectacularly diabolical assassinations that can be neither predicted nor prevented. Philadelphia is gripped with fear as Sheltons high-profile targets are slain one after another and the authorities are powerless to halt his reign of terror. Only Nick can stop the killing, and to do so he must outwit this brilliant sociopath in a harrowing contest of wills in which even the smallest misstep means death. With his own family now in Sheltons crosshairs, Nick finds himself in a desperate race against time facing a deadly adversary who seems always to be one step ahead. law abiding citizen, jamie foxx, gerard butler, law, justice, lawyer, revenge, vengeance, 300, gamer, ugly truth, ray, the soloist, the kingdom, dreamgirls, miami vice, jarhead, stealth <b>...</b>

I recently got my new computer with Sony Vegas Movie Studio 9 installed, so I thought I'd give it a trial run, making this video. I'ts a great song and I try to tell my own story using clips from one of my favourite moives, Jarhead. I highly recommend listening to this beautiful song in greater detail and watching the film, both are classics and amongst my favourites. Jarhead Every man fights his own war. Enjoy

Jarhead è un film del 2005 diretto da Sam Mendes. Il film è tratto dall'omonima autobiografia dell'ex-marine Anthony Swofford, inviato in missione in Iraq durante la Prima Guerra del Golfo. Il titolo in lingua inglese letteralmente significa "testa di latta", ed è un appellativo usato per definire il Marine, per alludere al fatto che non pensa con la sua testa ma esegue solamente gli ordini che gli vengono impartiti. Al soprannome contribuisce inoltre il tipico taglio di capelli militare, il "military cut" pubblicizzato fuori dai barbieri nelle zone dove sono presenti basi militari. Tale taglio conferisce alla testa la forma di un barattolo con in cima il tappo da svitare, rasando i capelli tutt'intorno e lasciandone circa un solo centimetro sulla parte alta.
