This begins like yet another found footage movie, with what seems to be real footage seized from Bedlam Asylum in 1964. Then, it goes to a narrative tale of George, who seems depressed and is hallucinating. He's talking to a therapist, doing a Rorsach test, intercut with talking to himself and having images of himself killing his mother. He checks himself into the asylum and is subjected to some inhumane conditions, including water torture and electro-shock therapy. It's all the usual stuff you can think of--abuse by the masochistic guards. The main doctor, Dr. Black, doesn't seem to know what's really going on, but he does.
My main problem with this is that it's not convincing--I felt that I was watching actors in a play. Secondly, this is all very familiar territory for a movie, previously done far better and more effective. Worst of all, it's way too long--and ultimately a bore.
