Storyline

Three Christs tells the story of an extraordinary experiment that began in 1959 at Michigan's Ypsilanti State Hospital, where Dr. Alan Stone treated three paranoid schizophrenic patients who each believe they are Jesus Christ. Dr. Stone pioneers a simple, yet revolutionary treatment: instead of submitting the patients to electroshock, forced restraints and tranquilizers, he puts them in a room together to confront their delusions. What transpires is a darkly comic, intensely dramatic story about the nature of identity and the power of empathy.

Well done, too cleanly for 1959, much more cold inhumane ie one flew over the cuckoo's nest
6 February 2020 | by pointsoflifeforpainSee all my reviews

I'm black born 1957 Mobile AL, 37yrs GP solo primary care doctor, board certified Family Medicine, 30 years using complimentary alternative integrative modalities, Chiropractic, osteopathy, acupuncture, myofascial chronic pain therapy per Matriarch master of Medicine Janet G. Travell, MD. John F Kennedy's Doctor Who help restore him the function efficiently as the president. She and her staff used a 27 part reparative curative recipe published in the 1980s. Including all those therapies in combinations: A. Daily Hands-On massage deep tissue release. B. spinal unwinding, traction, spinal manipulation. C. Acupuncture needling along the paraspinous muscles. E. More intense hypodermic intramuscular needling in the more scarred muscle tissues. F. Preventative self-care, diet, intake, minerals, supplements, wellness and sleep hygiene. G. Crucially related to this movie are vitamins minerals Trace elements, neurotransmitter stabilizers including tricyclics antidepressants helps to restore mental clarity, deep emotional upheaval, deep psychological trauma, shell shocked, combat stress disorder, and battle fatigue. aka bipolar, mania, delusional antipsychotic disorders. H. Educating the patient on their own disease so they can take care of themselves.

I learned all of these during my tenure in various aspects of practice.

Crucially at Malcolm Grow medical center treating Vietnam Vets with the core recipe. Over the past 20 years I added an acupuncture which is crucial and critical therapy for all afflictions.

Atrociously all the above therapies are not, have not been recognized by the American medical Association and banned marginalize and discouraged from the standards of care ... Since the ~1920s!

It turns out that the original doctors who established our Healthcare system intentionally excluded criminally excluded everything conceivable except drugs and surgery both have no effect affect on the multitude of signs and symptoms of everyday stress and strain ie battle fatigue which is deadly if I'm touched. Which it is an as a result 20 to 23 veterans blow their heads off every day due to medical negligence quackery sham scams magic tricks witchcraft, worthless toxic chemicals because Physicians have lost their freaking Minds!

In my opinion this movie cleans up the ruthlessness and gruesome in the wake of genocide hold behaviors at the hands of medical doctors and our federal government and the citizens who don't give a s***.
