Mad to Be Normal

Description
Psychologist R Ling is conducting different tests on people who have been diagnosed as mentally disturbed. Psychiatric medicine during the 1960s was quite different from what it is now, because that doctor was able to create a different atmosphere for his patients.

David Tennant [plays the role] with conviction and a nice Glaswegian drawl, but the film is a dodgy business that makes things up -- including a pregnant girlfriend (Elisabeth Moss) -- for no good reason.

Tennant's performance is strong, and he gives energy to a script that jolts in different directions looking for focus.

There's plenty of jazzy paisley shirts, flamboyant velvet suits and on-the-nose music cues to denote its psychedelic 1960s setting, but these elements do little to soften Laing's eye-raisingly invasive and possibly inappropriate approach to his patients.

It's fascinating and particularly well cast but, despite Tennant's watchable efforts, the decision to concentrate on the Kingsley Hall years rather than more of Laing's life proves a frustrating one.

Tennant is as watchable as ever, resplendent in migraine-inducing psychedelic shirts, walking a fine line between radical visionary and arrogant chancer.
