That leads me to my other point, one that has been made in the comments previously. As Teddy enters the facility with his partner, Chuck, the patients doing yard work creepily smile and wave as if they know him. But the fact is mind is what controls the brain. He awakens in a ward bed with Cawley, Sheehan, and the nurse who role-played Rachel Solando standing around him. Lobotomy was primarily used in cases of mania, dementia, and insanity because it rendered the patient passive and controllable. Once they find out Glen breaks protocol, they can assume Rachel sneaked out. Rule 2 - Please provide evidence Evidence makes for a good theory, this will be judged at the discretion of the mods.
It's a power beyond all imagining. It would be truly ironic if, after all that effort at helping Teddy to break his delusion the elaborately staged weekend , he slips through their fingers with a suicide-lobotomy because he pathologically blamed himself. To confirm that he has false memories I noticed that the concentration camp that Scorsese shows is not the one in Dachau. Cawley's car near the end - he suffers some sort of hallucination. Is it possible for one to have delusions that comprise things the brain has never been exposed to before.
Also heard in Teddy's nightmare. He wakes up completely sane in the middle of the night. The film premiered at the as part of the competition screening on February 13, 2010. They just used the lighthouse as a real fact to give more credibility to their agenda, to convince us and the protagonist that all his factual conclusions were indeed delusions. Columbia did not act on the option and it lapsed back to Lehane who sold it to Phoenix Pictures.
I guarantee you no one in this world know anything about mind. Sheehan and him talk about the missing patient. He finds his psychiatrist in a room at the top. It's a thriller, a crime story and a tortured psychological parable about collective guilt. Star Wars - All works related the Star Wars franchise. He also states that he loved his wife very much. In the end, it seems that Rachel is entirely fictional, her name being an anagram of Dolores' and her existence only in Teddy's head.
These actions cause Andrew to break down and lead him to become highly mentally unstable. In my view, the film is highly impressive in both these counts. In the book, the code found in Rachel's room was longer and more complicated, and Teddy finds other encrypted clues as he explores the island, which he is able to decipher because of his training as a U. He finally realizes that he is the lost patient, Andrew Laeddis. Furthermore, knowledge about mental illness was not as available or widespread as it is today. This prompts Daniels to break into the restricted Ward C. Teddy later encounters a guard who is looking for him, and directs him to the place where Teddy and Litchfield spoke.
While it is labeled a state hospital, it actually falls under the auspices of the Department of Correction, much the way the hospital in the movie is portrayed. Teddy fakes a relapse because he did not want to go out into society and possibly hurt anyone else. Psychotherapy treatments involve supportive therapy and cognitive therapy. So tell me what you think, was Andre Laeddis' regression real or was it just a very smart ruse? He gives him a cigarette. If Teddy really was just a victim of a secret brainwashing program that he was trying to expose, then the indictment on psychiatry is probably even worse than if he was just a mentally ill patient at the island.
But it is also a stab at Dr. Sheehan tells him that Ward C is open due to the storm breaking the walls. This way they can out him and hopefully he himself can find the lie in his own contradicting personality. He goes on to explain that Teddy is actually Andrew Laeddis, the 67th patient and one of the most dangerous patients they have because of his delusions and his violence towards the staff and the other patients coupled with his previous training as a U. Naehring, holding a syringe full of an unknown sedative. I may be completely wrong, but it is a new way to look at the movie, and something to consider in light of this discussion. Teddy did, however, have a wife and three children and it is stated that his wife was emotionally unstable.
Sheehan that he has regressed into his fantasy world before. He wakes up completely sane in the middle of the night. Little is known about his family history or life situation when he was young. When Teddy thought he saw Chuck's body lying in the water below and tried to climb down to help, he found the intake form. He said it isn't supposed to be that Teddy is fully aware and chooses the lobotomy, because that's more suicidal than the character is.
Of course, this scene is a major melodramatic leap from reality. Watch the movie again, frame by frame and be carefull to every detail if you want to be absolutely sure.
