| Those who do not learn history....
I followed this story closely when it was current. It interested me so much because, as a grad student in Psychology in the '60s, I often thought that some of my colleagues would have jumped happily at the chance to become monsters like Mitchell and Jessen. That said, I have reservations about seeing this story as a dramatic film with major stars. The same dialogue that so skillfully at least touches upon every relevant point, comes off as somewhat artificial. We, the public, are not accustomed to such fidelity to the facts in a dramatic film. Hence, the lessons are too easy to dismiss. (For similar reasons, I preferred the recent RBG documentary to ON THE BASIS OF SEX.) A related development just outside the scope of this film is the gyrations within the AMERICAN PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION caused by the "enhanced interrogation" scandal. Its ethical code was so vague that Mitchell and Jessen arguably had not violated it. Apparently, psychologists were available for dirty work physicians could not do because of the Hippocratic Oath.
