“Psychoanalysis” finds a shrink being investigated after five patients kill themselves within a week. The person leading this inquest is his rival and the guy that main shrink thinks killed his patients. The film plays like a riff on “Malice”, but it wants to create a sense of intimacy between the shrink and his clients. Yet, it also wants to say that the patients killed themselves due to this close connection.
There are a lot of ideas bandied back and forth and very few are heavily examined. This is only further complicated by the film’s short run time and its cast of blended acting ability. There’s a great movie here, I just wish it could get out of its way. Pick it up for a stream.
