excellent
17 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie when I was 17, and have been looking for forever (it seems) to see it again. It really had an impact on me. The review above is pretty accurate, but I thought that I remember that he is an "undercover" reporter "posing" as insane so he can get a story...when the people working at the insane asylum realize that he is going to spill the beans, and report on all of the atrocities that occur in that place, they have him committed and he can't get out...That's what I thought happened anyway. I would love to see it again to see how it really happened ( 25 years ago is a long time to remember correctly)If anyone has a copy they can make I would gladly pay for it!
