Movies reviews on those movies with hypnotism in them, or those that have touched me.

Does Being a Grown-up Mean Maturity?

Have you seen the 2016 English-language French-produced computer animated movie The Little Prince yet? – A Little Girl meets an eccentric old Aviator who tells her a fantastic tale about a young prince…

I enjoyed the movie, almost as much as the original classic tale. The new movie stays true to the original message of how fake we have built the world to be, and how tender our innocence is. That was moving.

Death, A Life Changing Experience

This is a fictional documentary movie review, Dearly Departed. It is a documentary worth watching if you ever wondered about death.

And who has not wondered about death? Either you accept it, deny it, or fear it; it’s the one sure thing about human existence.

Actors Play Souls in Cloud Atlas

The 2012 movie Cloud Atlas left me completely speechless. It felt to me as if I just came out of a wonderful hypnotic trance. And I didn’t want to wake up. I just sat there, thoughtless, speechless. The movie blew my mind. And that was such a wonderful thing!

On a Clear Day, You can See Forever

I feel this 1970 movie was made for me when I first saw it. It started right with hypnosis induction. As the scene unfolds, we see it’s a hypnosis class for doctors. There’s a student subject doing demo. While Dr. Marc Chabot, professor of psychiatry, regresses him back in time, a girl in audience is regressed back to 5 years old spontaneously. Daisy Gamble is so hypnotizable that she talks herself into trance again when awakened by Dr. Chabot. Daisy must be every hypnotist’s dream!

Hypnotism in “The Manchurian Candidate” 0

Hypnotism in “The Manchurian Candidate”

A client of mine recommended this movie “The Mancurian Candidate” when we were talking about that a lot of people get education on hypnotism from Hollywood. And I was told the remake in 2004 was not as good as the original one, so I found the original black and white movie.

Surprisingly, the brainwash and mind control in this movie is shockingly believable. The powerful conditioning of one’s mind and stealing of one’s soul turned the character of Raymond Shaw a man driven to do things he has no idea why.

Hypnosis in Movie: K-Pax 2

Hypnosis in Movie: K-Pax

The use of hypnosis to help a clearly disturbed client is very interesting. Unlike many Hollywood films, this one actually took the time to get the Hypnosis methods right! I found the hypnosis sequences too authentic to be written by anyone other than a real hypnotist.
