Directed by FREDERICK WISEMAN/1967/1hr, 24mins.

This legendary film is a stark and graphic portrayal of the conditions that existed at the State Prison for the Criminally Insane at Bridgewater, Massachusetts. TITICUT FOLLIES documents the various ways the inmates are treated by the guards, social workers and psychiatrists. The only American film banned from release for reasons other than obscenity or national security, it is now considered to be among the best documentary films of all time.

“TITICUT FOLLIES is a documentary film that tells you more than you could possibly want to know — but no more than you should know — about life behind the walls of one of those institutions where we file and forget the criminal insane… A society’s treatment of the least of its citizens — and surely these are the least of ours — is perhaps the best measure of its civilization.”–Richard Schickel, Life

“TITICUT FOLLIES IS A GREAT WORK, A NEAR-MASTERPIECE NOT JUST IN DOCUMENTARY FORM, BUT OF MOVIEMAKING IN ANY CATEGORY. It’s a film that transcends the time and place of its manufacture, and it should be seen not just by documentarians and film students but by anyone interested in the movies as a medium capable of powerfully presenting the human condition.”–Ray Greene, Village View
