I’m ready for my close-up: Depictions of madness in the movies

Alex Fitch interviews Jonathan Gadsby, a psychiatric nurse from the West Country. Jonathan discusses the actual complaints the characters in One flew over the cuckoo’s nest probably suffered from, the probability of John Nash’s visual hallucinations as depicted in A Beautiful mind and the likelihood of the FBI asking a psychotic serial killer for advice in the Hannibal Lecter films.
