A film to tell you some history and help you to realize realities of a barbaric field of non science
4 October 2018 | by strawberrypen101See all my reviews

Everyone should consider seeing this film to get some historic understanding of the way things were and the kinds of things that happened in the 80's and 90's.

one of the worst parts about it is that these things STILL happened long after these kinds of cases made their ways through the courts and Won there! the ways that psychiatry occupies our bodies is Insidious and Disturbingly pervasive, the destruction which they cause is immutable and can never be forgotten, please see the movie and realize that it is only one of many stories, in which human beings were required to suffer such incomprehensible losses without cause at the alter of psychiatry (for it is certainly a Faith and NOT a science!!!) remember always!!!!!

I added one extra star because I like the subject of the film and feel these things need to be shown and talked about more for social understanding of the realities of what can be considered nothing less than an epidemic.
