Part of BAMcinématek

Author Damion Searls in person

In the 1940s and 50s, Hollywood’s infatuation with all things Freud yielded a string of films that plumbed (however sensationalistically) the depths of the unconscious mind. To mark the release of Damion Searls’ new biography of Hermann Rorshach, The Inkblots, BAMcinématek revisits two of the best of these vintage psycho-shockers.
