Titicut Follies – Mental Institution Documentary

WARNING!! This is very graphic!! Titicut Follies is a black and white 1967 documentary film by United States filmmaker Frederick Wiseman about the treatment of inmates / patients at Bridgewater State Hospital for the criminally insane, a Massachusetts Correctional Institution in Bridgewater, Massachusetts. The title is taken from a talent show put on by the hospital’s inmates. (The talent show was named after the Wampanoag word for the nearby Taunton River.) In 1967 the film won awards in Germany and Italy. It was one of a number of films made by Wiseman that examined social institutions: hospital, police, school, etc., in the United States.

    Its a bit slow till you get 30 mins into. After seeing the moviie all the way thru its worthy of reviewing again. Its a part of patient history. I wonder where the guy is who wanted to go back to jail. Today he would be a advocate in ex survivor patient movement. We must never forget.

    Thanks for this American historical monument. Legally suppressed until the filmed subjects had passed away, it is an amazing insight into the horror of government ‘remedies’.
