    Shutter Island is a great film for Schizophrenia!!

    My teacher likes to over work us so we are covering Schiz AND Depression so when it comes to the exam we can choose between the two questions! He did the same for Unit 3. He taught us 5 and let us choose - hard work but well worth it.

    Ohh we watched it rencently. And i still have no idea why that indian dude killed nicolson off.:confused:
    I think he killed him because he didn't want Jack to remain in that 'vegetable' state after he was labotomized. He helped him out, because you don't have much of a life after that treatment. Thankfully it's not used much anymore though.

    But it's not like he had nothing waiting for him outside, he did, he has that blondy girl, a family, and was happy. So that was kinda weird for meh wen he killed him.

    I think the part that got me most stumbled was that skinny guy who stutters, when he came and stopped stuttering after he had a nite in with the blondy, and then l8ter he killed himself :eek: then nicolson was like strangling the nurse biatch. Thats why everyone in my class was like, the nurse is bad after that. And i was the only one to say 'no she's good, cos she's doing whats right for the situation and being firm with everyone'.

    I think it was the thought or mentioning of his mother which triggered his stuttering. Because when the nurse told him off for sleeping with that girl, he could speak fine, but when she mentioned that she'd tell his mother he started stuttering again.

    Everybody might see her as bad because most people like Jack Nicholson and his acting. And so want him to get out and annoy the nurse, haha.

    I'm doing Schizophenia, Research Methods and Media... but there is a possibility we might be studying Anomalistic Psychology instead of Media! (which is stuff like paranormal, so sounds reeeeeally exciting ) x
    This is the exact same as me! I think we're having a class vote on whether to do media or anomalistic Not sure which one I'd rather do. We've just finished schizophrenia, how are you finding it? x

    Dunno if you have started on anomalistic yet but as a word of warning the year before me did it last year when it first came out and they all said it was really hard to get their heads around even the teachers found it hard to cover so much in the time! Our class was a bit gutted to hear that because as you said it sounds really interesting!
