Performers, Cast and Crew:
Rolling Stone - 11/17/2005
3 stars out of 5 -- "[B]lunt and intimate....The jolt of JARHEAD is undeniable, and it comes when you least expect it."
Entertainment Weekly - 11/11/2005
"[A]n eye-opening experience....[Mendes] forges, perhaps, a new kind of drama: a portrait of war stripped of all glamour and design....JARHEAD is an existential docudrama: cool and funny, vivid and remote at the same time." -- Grade: B+
USA Today - 11/23/2005
"The result is rewarding....It's good to see Mendes expanding as a filmmaker."
Sight and Sound - 01/01/2006
"[Q]uizzical, visually striking....JARHEAD provides some kind of reportage of a war whose consequences we haven't yet begun to understand..."
Uncut - 02/01/2006
"[A]n exceptionally smart war movie, the more so for the relative absence of any war."
Total Film - 06/01/2006
3 stars out of 5 -- "It's an image of war that lingers, a vision of Hell which Dante would recognise..."
