Probably would have liked it more had I not known anything about it. Richard Burton is very good, as is the kid. Was not a fan of the style in which Burton's monologues were shot, I think it would have been smoother and more effective to have made them a part of the story, of their discussions. I didn't feel as though an effective enough bond had been formed between psychiatrist and patient, and although I felt I got what the writer was getting at with the boy's story, I still feel like alot is open to interpretation. This is such a weird story that I think I would have felt better if more were spelled (spelt?) out; but that's the point, to be unsettled.
What's better; insanity or living a dying, muted life?
