Mr. Patman works as a nurse in the psychiatric ward of a Vancouver area hospital. He treats his patients with care and compassion, they who in turn like him. To each, they are like family. He has disdain, however, for the doctors due to their lack of compassion toward the patients. Otherwise, he is a relatively solitary and lonely man. He rents a room in a house, where he lives with his best friend, his cat named Patty. He is carrying on an affair with Abadaba, the wife of the couple who own the house. The affair is one more of convenience for him, although Abadaba, also a lonely woman, is more emotionally dependent upon him than she is willing to admit. Patman, however, has more of an emotional and sexual attraction to Miss Peabody, his colleague at work. Peabody has career plans beyond her current job, and asks Patman to come with her. But Patman, affected by his work, is as intrigued by an offer by Mr. Wolfe, one of the ward's patients. Written by
WARNING SPOILERS CONTAINED HEREIN: If you're a fan of James Coburn, his mesmerizing performance in this movie will be a real treat for you. He plays John Patman, a male nurse in a mental hospital. Unlike the coldly detached doctors he works with, he actually cares about the patients and he considers them his friends. His job gets to him, his unpleasant past haunts him, and he starts to take matters into his own hands, which leads to a great downer of an ending. This is one very dark movie and could probably be called film noir. It's got plenty of creepy atmosphere and an equally creepy soundtrack. If you get a chance to get this black gem of a movie, snag it!
