Snakepit

The snake pit (1948)

The unusual start is immediately engaging and gripping. It leads to a strong and unsettling tale of mental disorder, with insights into the rather chilling treatments and terrible institutions of the 40s.

Unfortunately, stale psychoanalytics and didactic stuffiness diminishes the emotional power some. Maybe in my book.

  1. I pretty much agree with what you said. First saw this on television when I was probably ten or eleven. I’d put it in my book for being ahead of its time.
