  • Tells you more than you could possibly want to know--but no more than you should know--about life behind the walls of one of those institutions where we file and forget the criminally insane. In this instance it is the State Prison Hospital maintained at Bridgewater, in Massachusetts. "The movie avoids nothing as it relentlessly pursues the horrible truth of a horrible situation and, in the process, reveals once again the seemingly infinite capacity of man to visit inhumanity on his fellow men.''--Richard Schickel, Life. (Restricted to use on University of Washington campuses only)
