F10 WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2001 LOS ANGELES TIMES Psychodrama: Psychiatrists Examine Films' Myths and Ministrations Continued from Fl forensic psychiatry at Bellevue Hospital in New York, has been involved with "Word" since the early 1990s, as the project moved through different directors and writers. His main contribution to the film, he says, "was helping to make the psychiatric sessions more real," though other of his suggestions were sacrificed to the film's ticking clock structure. "I tried to make the interactions between Douglas and actress Brittany Murphy more direct and simplistic," he says, "I wanted it not to be incredulous, though I understood that some of it was exaggerated so that the audience could fully understand the emotions and the stress Douglas was under." To a limited extent, he says, he succeeded. However, there could have been further clarification as to how Douglas "flips" a patient (gets her to open up and trust him) in a single day after she had been emotionally shut down for a decade. Some of those suggestions, he' says, fell prey to dramatic expediency, the culprit in other movies for which he has served as consultant, such as "Final Analysis," starring Richard Gere. A significant contribution to the more recent film, however, was Berger's mention that the patient may be faking her illness to remain in the safety of a medical hospital.

"The hypnosis scenes are authentic," she says, even if she admits that the doctor's ability to speedily plumb his patient's subconscious for trauma may lean more toward science fiction than psychiatry. Gottlieb also sought to bring a spine of realism to the presentation of the other patients at the Manhattan psychiatric facility in "K-PAX." In this film, as in movies like "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," the portrayal of the subsidiary characters as eccentric and sometimes downright endearing can make the audience wonder what danger they present to themselves or society, especially when major city streets are populated by men and women who seem to be in dire need of psychiatric intervention. The book on which "K-PAX" is based, she explains, was written when hospitalization was more common for less severe problems. "Today involuntary hospitalization is for more acute patients," she says. She endeavored to inject touches into the script that lent credence to the characters' hospitalization: burn marks and slashes on one woman, mention of another man's violent outbursts in his workplace. "Donnie Darko" writer and director Richard Kelly did not have a consultant on his independent film, culling most of his information about his central character's paranoid schizophrenia diagnosis from the Internet. "I knew he wasn't crazy at all and that the experiences he was having were more due to supernatural circumstances," says Kelly.

It was a great way to ground a supernatural story in some semblance of science and medicine." The psychiatrist in the film, played by Katharine Ross, mainly functions as a sympathetic ear, one who doesn't believe her patient is psychotic. Kelly chose a psychiatrist for this character rather than a psychologist because a medically certified doctor can prescribe medication. A scene that was cut out of the film reveals that the medication is actually a placebo, Kelly's jab at "the overpre-scription of medication" to children and young adults. "Not that I'm against medication or think it unnecessary," he says. "But a lot of psychological problems can be cured without medication. I was commenting on how Ritalin and other 'gatekeeper' drugs can do more harm than good and how overmedicating children has gotten out of control since the '80s. A lot of my friends when I was growing up were not getting good grades and were diagnosed with ADD attention deficit disorder, which is a bunch of baloney in many cases. They weren't getting good grades because they were lazy, and kids have been lazy since the beginning of time." The ability to write prescriptions seems to be the main distinguishing characteristic between psychology and psychiatry in movies, and characters in mental facilities are often presented as heavily and consistently medicated. Berger says such presentations are "inaccurate. It doesn't all start out with prescriptions." Advances in new types of medications with fewer side effects notwithstanding, he says, "It's no substitute for therapy." Adds Gabbard, the process of psychiatric therapy can be long and boring, which is why filmmakers look for shortcuts.

The "quick-fix" of medications is one of the fallacies about psychiatry that movies perpetuate, according to Gottlieb. Others include "the perception that psychiatrists are unfeeling about their patients or simply burnt out. It's much more complex than that," she says. "There are disorders, especially psychotic disorders, in which drugs are necessary, or else the therapy feeds into the person's delusions." Especially because she works with children and adolescents, Gottlieb said she takes "every opportunity not to prescribe medication." Berger breaks down the depiction of his profession in movies even further: "There's the evil psychiatrist, the over-involved psychiatrist, the bumbling psychiatrist and the one who's got a lightbulb going off every three seconds." Because of time constraints, says Gabbard, movie shorthand about psychiatry procedure is perhaps unavoidable. On a TV series like "The Sopranos" (Berger also cites the short-lived "Wonderland," which he helped develop), the process is allowed time to develop, allowing for a more balanced presentation. Gabbard lauds the work of character Dr. Melfi (played by Lorraine Bracco) with Tony Soprano (James Gan-dolfini) and is writing a book about it. " 'The Sopranos' is by far the most accurate portrayal of psychiatry ever to appear in any electronic media," he says. "To be fair, in 39 one-hour episodes over three seasons, it's possible to achieve some reflection on the complexity of therapy that isn't possible in a two-hour feature." The series is also unique in how it depicts the dynamic between a female therapist and a male patient, as opposed to films like "Spellbound" and "The Prince of Tides," to mention just two, in Please see Psychodrama, Fll Until ifU Duly I rtoun Mauti Parting J1 it Boi OIlic BEVERLY CONNECTION La Cienega at Beverly Blvd. nn777-r-n mi unmi Presented In THX Digital Sound FROM HELL (R) 11:20-2:10-5:00-7:50-10:40 Presented In THX Digial Sound THE LAST CASTLE (R) 11:00-1:55-4:50-7:40-10:35 Presented In Dolby Stereo IRON MONKEY (PG-13) 12:15-2:304:45-7:10-9:45 Presented In Digital Sound BAHDITS (PG-13) 1.00-4 00-7 00-9 45 Presented In THX Digital Sound TRAINING DAY (I) 11:O0-1:45-4:3O-7:20-1$l;tt) Presented In Digital Sound CORKY ROMANO (PG-1 3) 12:10-2:20-4:40-8:00-10:15 Presented In Digital Sound ZOOLANDER (PG-13) 12 X-2 20-4 40-7.00-9 X Presented In Digital Sound ZOOLANDER (PG-13) 12:00-2:30-5:00-7:40-10:00 Presented In Digital Sound DON'T SAY A WORD (R) 11:36-2:154:55-7:30-10:15 ffiliWIW") fRtt YiliddleimiLU 111 Cinemj Gii hrgtstn MIihh UrUI ft M PM Dt CENTRAL CINEMA i bOt N Oianae At Milford Behind McDonald's 818549-9950 Presented In Digital Sound SERENDIPITY (PG-13) 1:15-3:30-5:45-8:00-10:15 vtA NUYS BLVD In Digital Sound FROM HELL (R) - 4:40 - 7:30 - 10:20 Presented In Digital Sound MAX KEEBLE'S BIG MOVE (PG) 1 50-4 30-7 30-9 45 Presented In Digital Sound BAHDITS (PG-1 3) 1:15-4:10-7:00-9 50 Presented In THX Digital Sound DON'T SAY A WORD (R) 1:45-4:30-7:15-1000 Presented In Digital Sound CORKY ROMANO (PG-1 3) 1:00-3:30-5:45-8:00-10:30 Presented In THX Digital Sound HEARTS IN ATLANTIS (PG-1 3) 2:15-5:00-7:45-10:15 Presented In Digital Sound TRAINING DAY (R) 1:30-4:25-7:15-10:10 Presented In Digital Sound HARDBALL (PG-13) 1:30-4:15-7:00-9:30 Presented In Digital Sound ZOOLANDER (PG-1 3) 12:45-3: 1 5-5:30-7:45-1 0:00
