Hello all. I'm looking for movies that portray therapists and therapy (and of course, documentaries about therapy or therapist itself are also welcome).

Examples are Sybil, The Three Faces of Eve, Hide and Seek, Prozac Nation, etc.

Thank you! Posted Image

Grosse Point Blank has a funny therapist/patient relationship.

Marty: Oatman? Don't hang up. Listen, I didn't kill anyone - except some guy tried to kill me, so if I see that guy again, I'm definitely gonna kill him, but I'm not going to kill anybody else. I'm on my way to the reunion now with Debi, but I'm just a little nervous, and I'd like to do a phoner.
Dr. Oatman: O.K., repeat after me. "I am at home with the me. I am rooted in the me who is on this adventure."
Marty: I am at home with the me, I am rooted in the me who is on this adventure.
Dr. Oatman: Good. Now take a deep breath, and realize that this is me breathing.
Marty: Wait, I'm confused. Do you want me to say it or do you want me to realize it?
Dr. Oatman: What?
Marty: About the breathing.
Dr. Oatman: Say it.
Marty: This is me breathing.
Dr. Oatman: Good, now keep doing that for about twenty minutes.
Marty: Listen, I got to go.
Dr. Oatman: O.K. Keep it up. Don't kill anybody.
Marty: Right!

I'd second "Ordinary People". Very good movie about therapy and depression in general.

One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest
Fight Club has some scenes of people in therapy as well.


Not a movie, but in The Sopranos Tony spends alot of time with his therapist Dr Melfi.

It's not necessarily "about" therapy, but the main character in Solaris is a psychologist who tries to come to terms with his grief.

Hello all. I'm looking for movies that portray therapists and therapy (and of course, documentaries about therapy or therapist itself are also welcome).

Examples are Sybil, The Three Faces of Eve, Hide and Seek, Prozac Nation, etc.



I Was a Teenage Werewolf (1957).
