A revealing and dryly humorous film about voyeurism and the patient-doctor relationship.
Empathy, despite its entertaining and insightful dialogue, can also be a bore.
An intelligent if shifty riff on the relationship between psychoanalyst and subject.
Explores a fascinating subject in a self-indulgent and less-than- illuminating manner.
Flows with a certain grace and smoothness, due largely to the sense of psychic mystery projected by a sweet actress, Gigi Buffington.
It demystifies the profession in delightful fashion.
This odd and fascinating mishmash of fiction, documentary and post-doctoral research project raises a host of interesting questions about the masks people wear, even if it doesn't provide any definitive answers.
Siegel's attempt to unveil psychotherapy's strange nostrums for female depression is labyrinthine and intellectually abstruse, more feminist polemic than good filmmaking.
More about schematically posing questions in the form of a film, as opposed to creating something that feels like an actual film.
The nonfiction scenes are most interesting, and could have easily sustained the whole picture.
A psychological funhouse that's always a pleasure to explore.
It's smart, inventive and well-crafted. But as a feature film, it's a novelty item at best.
