I don't know what it's called, the program guide for my dish is being funny.

But there is this really dark documentary from WWII about battle field psychiatry, these returning GI's who had to be cleared to be released back into society. They all had stress related injuries such as paralysis, inability to walk, talk, remember ect...

And they were showing this docter basically manipulating them with sodium amytal which induced this trance like state... He managed to get them to react in a way that his touch was unbearably hot, then he got them talking and basically re-ran them through the events that lead up to each injury.

I find this form of mind control and it's mass use kind of disturbing.
I mean, I'm glad it could help people, but wtf else could it do?
When the cameras were away, I'm sure the behaviour of those doctors and nurses had to change some.


It was a black and white film, if any of you know it and could give me the title, I'd be very appreciative.

I must see it again.
