jenniferlreimerDocumentaries

TV surprised me and there was an excellent documentary/short animated film called “That Crazy Game Called Life”, a National Film Board of Canada (NFB) production, on this afternoon.  Unfortunately, whereas the NFB used to provide all of their films in full on their website, they evidently can no longer afford to do so.  You can read about it here though! … Read More

jenniferlreimerDocumentaries

What a coincidence – aspartame, known to reduce serotonin levels, came out in the early 1980s, and SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) antidepressants were introduced to the populace a few years later… An important documentary for anyone to watch, as we’ve all consumed aspartame.  Aspartame has been proven to cause cancer, but the clinical trials that have come to this … Read More

This video may not be available for very long, so watch/download it ASAP! You may be familiar with Louis Theroux’s BBC series, including “Weird Weekends”.  Theroux travels to a location where a disturbing or just plain bizarre subculture exists, and films the people involved, while also participating himself – I suppose he’s a bit of an urban anthropologist.  He has … Read More

The famed, banned documentary, captures everyday life in a mental institution in 1967, and showed the world the violence and abusive treatment that inmates were subject to for the first time.  This film is a must-see for anyone who is interested in psychiatry.  It should be a must-see for everyone.  I can’t see many people disagreeing with the fact that … Read More

Last night, after finally getting some pain relief, Alaryyk and I watched the documentary I posted here a few days back, “Psychiatry: An Industry of Death”. The narrator of the film sounded like an announcer at a “monster truck” event.  The captions looked like those from an episode of “24” (I’ve never watched this show myself, but I’ve seen the … Read More

Selling Sickness is my personal favorite documentary about the problem with the pharmaceutical industry operating under  a “science for profit model… I struggle with the obvious spin of others like “Psychiatry: An Industry of Death”.  It is not medicine or needing medicine that is “wrong” – it is the faults of a system where medicine is produced by corporations more … Read More
