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.
