Storyline

Jake Klein, 50, sets out to make a movie. He hires an actor to play himself and throws a big party. His idea is to shoot the heck out of it and see what he gets. But, everything spins out of control as different, unexpected people show up. Old loves are there. New loves are there. His dead father, his mother when she was young, his kids, his ex-wife. Even his younger selves, Jake at 40, Jake at 30 and Jake at 17, are there, too! And every one of them has tons of advice on how to fix his screwed up life. Jake's head reels as he staggers through what's either a mystical experience, a nervous breakdown... or both! Written by Jake Squared LLC

Incredible film that challenges and begs for an intelligent audience
13 July 2014 | by neiltheking1125See all my reviews

I can't tell you enough how much you and your film inspired me to challenge the audience and really give them something to think about. Jake Squared is still resonating with me today just making me think about my life and where I was 10 years ago, where I am now, and where I will be 10 years from now in all aspects of my life. It was incredibly well acted from everybody involved as well as beautiful to look at.

Please go and see this and unlink most films out nowadays, bring your brain. It is well worth the exercise in existential thought.

One of my favorite films I have seen all year that leaves me waiting to see it again and again just so I can really grasp every aspect that this film offers.
