I get annoyed (but somewhat embarrassed) each time I’m asked if I’ve watched a classic “everyone’s seen it but you” movie. Growing up, I was deprived of many American cultural must-haves such as meatloaf, baseball, and American Graffiti. At least I can proudly say that I’ve watched each episode of “I Love Lucy” twice and mastered the art of moonwalking.
Therefore, I made it a goal to catch up on classic American movies (specifically ones related to Psychiatry) so I can at least be up to speed with the iconic movies of my profession. I began compiling a list, but I’m sure there’s several noteworthy ones missing. Any further suggestions would be much appreciated.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (done)
A Beautiful Mind (done)
A Clockwork Orange (done)
Girl, Interrupted (done)

Charlie Bartlett (thanks Minesh)

Three Faces of Eve
Reign on Me
Fight Club (haven’t seen it yet, but I thought it was more awe of Brad Pitt than psych-related)
