Irreverent peek at the Freud brand of brain analysis
I've seen funnier movies and I was at first thinking, oh no, it's a terrible vehicle for Carol Kane, Carol Baker, and Bud Cort. But it seduced me with humor. I overlooked the "European Farce" sense of humor and just went with it. Discovered many, many thought provoking gems that actually resonated with what I've read about the Freud phenomenon that explores our hidden thoughts and desires, according to his own neuroses. I've read serious writers that describe his distaste for blood and avoidance of established medical fields for that reason. It seems obvious that you can't establish scientific theories and test them if the data is hidden in disparate peoples unconscious. Most recently I've looked into his foot fetish ideas concerning a bas relief in the ruins of Pompeii. The film is not for serious admirers of psychoanalysis. It's a romp of making fun of Freud's theories and the wit is sharp. Dick Shawn was super. The ladies were enjoyable to watch.
