Mis-titled and tries to do to much in a short amount of time

It's quite difficult to give much of a summary of a life and work as
complex as Freud in 50 minutes. This documentary does a decent job of
giving a quick overview of major events in his life. It seems to spend
the longest part on two aspects of Freud, that while interesting, were
actually not that important to his work. First was his interest in
cocaine and the work he did to promote the use of the drug. The second,
was the way that anti-semitism and the rise of Nazism in Germany and
Austria forced him to leave for England.
Overall, this is a decent biography but it's is more about the life of
Freud than any of his work. I feel that the title is a bit misleading
in that "Analysis of a Mind" makes you think it will either provide an
analysis of Freud himself or teach you something about how analysis
works. It does neither, but instead gives an interesting account of
events in Freud's life.
