I just watched an interesting movie on netflix called Stonehearst Asylum. It is based on a story by Edgar Allan Poe, so it is decidedly strange. It's set in 1899 England and is about a young doctor, who takes a position at a mental institution. When he gets there, he finds the institute is being run in an unconventional manner! It has the typical Poe twist to it and examines the methods of treating mental illness at the turn of the century. It stars Michael Caine, Ben Kingsley and Kate Beckinsale. Definitely well worth watching.
