It would be nice to have a board section specifically for cinema with each nominated movie having its own subject title.

Cinema is such a powerful medium and can be hugely therapeutic.

The cinema section in the books area is already very popular with members.

That's exactly right, Patrick. I have found a bunch of movies which I've called "healing". I've had depersonalization disorder among other things and seeing a film which seems to bring me back to who I am is worth reporting to others. The latest one I reported is The Painted House, taken from a novel by Grisham. The healing seems to be in the psychological process of projecting myself into the character in the film.

I have added the one you recommend, Die Blechtrommel, to my list in Netflix. Oddly enough I'm almost the same age as the boy in that film. I also developed a speech disorder but I didn't bang a drum. I had several musical toys, all of which disappeared "mysteriously" after a few days. That speech problem left of it's own accord but then returned when I was 13 years old and lasted for over 3 years.
