Titicut Follies is a 1967 documentary film by United States filmmaker Frederick Wiseman about the treatment of inmates / patients at Bridgewater State Hospital for the criminally insane, a Massachusetts Correctional Institution in Bridgewater, Massachusetts. The title is taken from a talent show put on by the hospital's inmates. In 1967 the film won awards in Germany and Italy. It was one of a number of films made by Wiseman that examined social institutions: hospital, police, school, etc., in the United States. Wiseman's cinema-verite masterpiece is very possibly the greatest documentary film of all time. Forget about what you've seen in Hollywood films, this is the raw, hellish reality of living in a cement cell, as indifferent and sadistic guards taunt and abuse the inmates. Watch in horror as a doctor forcefeeds a patient through a nose-tube, while carelessly dropping cigarette ash into the mix. Screaming, babbling maniacs galore… the lunatic is on the grass, indeed.
