J'ai adoré. Rien ne se passe vraiment mais j'ai quand même adoré.

(3.5) Some people might find this comparison sacrilege, but Slaughterhouse Five reminded me of the movie Jacob's Ladder. Both Billy Pilgrim and Jacob underwent horrific experiences during war - Billy in WW2 and Jacob in Vietnam. Both experienced hallucinations and both became unstuck in time, being instantaneously catapulted back and forth in time, and experiencing those times as if they were all occurring in the present moment. So what's real and what's not? What is the actual present moment? The Tramalfadorians, the aliens who Billy claimed abducted him, would say that it's all real and the entire span of one's life exists in the present moment. I would say that both Billy Pilgrim and Jacob are suffering from PTSD. I think what Kurt Vonnegut might be trying to convey is that the experience of war is so horrific that there is no way to make any linear or literal sense of it.
