Movie Summary

"I Don't Know Whether I'm Alive And Dreaming Or Dead And Remembering." Joe Bonham After a shell leaves his body mangled on the final day of World War I, young Joe Bonham (Timothy Bottoms) lies trapped in a hospital bed; a fully conscious quadruple amputee who cannot speak, hear or see, left to wander within his own mind between his harsh reality and memories of a happier life long gone. Written and directed by Dalton Trumbo, the "Hollywood Ten's" most celebrated screenwriter (Spartacus, Exodus, Roman Holiday), Johnny Got His Gun is based on his award-winning 1939 antiwar novel, which earned a new generation of fans during the Vietnam era. The film-which costars Jason Robards and features Donald Sutherland in a powerful performance as Jesus Christ-won the 1971 Cannes Film Festival's Grand Prix Special du Jury. Newly remastered from the original 35mm negative is the moving, provocative and masterfully crafted cult film that takes you through the mind of a man lost somewhere on the edges of sanity and insanity, life and death.
