Snake Pit, The -- (Movie Clip) Now Then, Virginia

what a powerful movie!  I don't think that most mental institutions are like this anymore.  in fact I never hear about long term institutionalization any more.  I have no idea why they put her in a tub (was it filled with ice cubes?)  I recall that many workers in psych hospitals seem grossly incompetent and that was certainly true in this movie.  I don't think that shock therapy is very common or even done at all anymore.
