If you have a love of movies and an interest in psychological matters, The Motion Picture Prescription: Watch This Movie and Call Me in the Morning is for you. It guides the reader to films that address a situation or a particular need. A specific recommended movie may provide therapeutic help in the viewing. It’s also simple fun to read and remember old films, to take another peek from today’s perspective.
I was skeptical when I read the book but when I put the author’s suggestions into practice I found it to be a great experience. As an added bonus I got to enjoy some movies that I never would have watched otherwise. The key is to follow the author’s suggestions about how to use the movies in one’s healing process and not just watch the movie(s). I highly recommend the book particularly for those who want to explore relationship issues.
