A trove of film reviews with a psychiatric perspective

On December 8th covering

Films and TV often present mental health and treatment issues. As a rule, this is done with cringe-inducing incompetence. My general theory about this is that there are a lot of people in Hollywood who are angry with their therapists.

Roland Atkinson, a Professor of Psychiatry at the Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, has decided to do something about this. His web site has reviews of over 500 films, with an emphasis on the handling of mental health and treatment issues. I have browsed the collection, and his reviews are thoughtful, interesting, and sometimes surprising. I recommend a visit.
