  • The performances in Girl, Interrupted resonate, but the movie does not. show more

  • Mangold ultimately delivers the same film any number of other Hollywood journeyman could've made from this material, and the results are predictable and stale. show more

  • A rare movie, one that manages to be both quiet and electrifying, touching and unnerving. But it is not a great movie, even though its stars deserve for it to be. show more

    AS A PATIENT IN MANY HOSPITALS,THE MOVIE MADE ME FEEL AS I WAS AT HOME. SUFFERING FROM THE SAME ILLINESS, AN ANOTHER ONE CALLED MULTIPLE PERSONALITY DISORDED,I KNOW WHAT SHE WAS GOING THROUGHT,BEING A PATIENT ON THE INSIDE ,MEETING THE DOCTORS AN STAFF ,YOU GET TO UNDERSTAND HOW IT ALL WORKS.IN ALL THAT TIME NOT MUCH HELP EVER CAME OUT OF ALL THOSE HOSPITAL STAYS.THE DOCTORS AT TIMES DON'T CARE ABOUT THEIR PATIENTS,EXP. THASE WHO ARE DIFFERENT. SO I'M GOING BACK TO COLLEDGE THAKEN COURSES ABOUT ALL THE PROBLEMS THAT I'D HAVE,NO ONE ELSE UNDERSTANDS THE HEARTSHIP,THE PAIN AND MOST OF ALL THE DEPRESSION THAT CAN COME FROM HAVING AN PROBLEM SUCH AS THIS.HAVING XXY SYDROME ADDED TO IT, YOUR LIFE WILL BE NEVER THE SAME AGAIN.

    I just watched this film for the first time [2008] and found it to be fantastically interesting offering, as it does, an insiders view of mental disorders and their "treatment" in the 1960s.
