An ego is a terrible thing to waste
16 January 2002 | by helpless_dancerSee all my reviews

Fairly good drama detailing a stressed out women's descent into a cult headed by a phony guru/psychiatric M.D. The doctor, through hypnosis, convinces the woman that her family life is a mess and that he alone is the answer to all life's questions. Of course, her family goes all out in an effort to have her returned to the fold by enlisting the aid of a man experienced in recognizing cult activity. The poor lady could probably have bypassed all this grief by consulting a good chiropractor. Too much went on in too little time leading to a sketchy program, but still it was a nice little production for anyone interested in how this type of sham is pulled off. A good novel dealing with a related subject was Dean Koontz' "False Memory".
