The film is a stark and graphic portrayal of the conditions that existed at the State Prison for the Criminally Insane at Bridgewater, Massachusetts. Titcut Follies documents the various ways the inmates are treated by the guards, social workers and psychiatrists. "Titcut 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. The repulsive reality revealed in Titcut Follies forces us to contemplate our capacity for callousness. (Richard Schickel, Life).

Frederick Wiseman---USA--1967---84 mins.
