A psychiatrist confronts a new client whose problems may not be all in his head in this drama. Dr. Ty Adams (Michael Beach) is a well-known psychiatrist who has earned no small amount of controversy for his blunt and "anti-medicinal" approach to treatment. Adams is also dealing with some emotional problems of his own after the death of his wife and child. Parker (John C.

This dramatically shaky contest of wills only reiterates the old Hollywood saw: Evil is interesting and good is boring.
A morality tale whose thought-provoking potential is hampered by a made-for-TV look, rigid performances and an asinine 'twist' that brazenly rips off The Sixth Sense.
Despite its flaws, Crazy as Hell marks an encouraging new direction for La Salle.
So much about the film is loopy and ludicrous ... that it could have been a hoot in a bad-movie way if the laborious pacing and endless exposition had been tightened.
An allegory concerning the chronically mixed signals African American professionals get about overachieving could be intriguing, but the supernatural trappings only obscure the message.
'Crazy as Hell' leaves viewers with something to think about after the screen goes dead and the house-lights come on.
A great ending doesn't make up for a weak movie, and Crazy as Hell doesn't even have a great ending.
A bit too derivative to stand on its own as the psychological thriller it purports to be.
A psychological thriller that doesn't really hold up if you think about it too much, but is nonetheless highly entertaining in a low-budget, David Lynch-ian way.
Utilizing lots of complicated, well-choreographed steadicam shots, La Salle directs with confidence -- this may yet be his true calling.
