Films: Madness and the Movies VII  

Films have a long history of portraying mental illnesses in its many dimensions. They have shown the patient to be either a monster or a victim; the therapists as either scheming villains, bungling fools or compassionate heroes; and mental institutions either as chambers of cruelty or corridors of caring. In this survey, we will look at eight films revealing the cinematic approach to mental illness and then how each movie helps us to understand mental illness. This year we will offer all the exciting newer films depicting mental illnesses but also revisit some of the classic movies from the first six showings.
