Restore the truth of the story! Complete analysis of the plot of confinement island!

Date of event: 1954

Real background:

——In 1945, World War II ended.

——In the 1950s, there was a deep division and struggle between psychiatrists of “biological model” and “psychoanalytic model”.

In the decades since the turn of the 19th century and the 20th century, psychiatry of the “psychoanalytic model” has established an unchallengeable control in the industry, and established the treatment of mental diseases as subjective and dynamic. Time-consuming psychotherapy is the most concentrated embodiment of these characteristics. (in the film, Dr. Cowley’s role-playing method is a time-consuming and laborious psychoanalytic model therapy)

Psychiatry of “biological model” is unwilling to be weak and frequently challenges it. They put forward that psychoanalysis is unscientific, expensive and ineffective. Scientific treatment with obvious curative effect and low price is their best weapon against psychoanalysts. (drug control and lobotomy)

However, it is well known that the scientific treatment model has also led to the forced admission of psychiatric patients, forced use of high-dose psychotropic drugs, forced spasm and inhuman psychiatric surgery. All this has directly led to the “biological model” of psychiatry becoming the target of public criticism in the struggle to safeguard human rights. The anti psychiatry movement began with the resistance to the biological model of psychiatry, its inhumanity and its abuse in the name of science.

——In the early 1950s, chlorpromazine (the drug mentioned in the tablet) was used in the treatment of psychosis.

Chlorpromazine, also known as dongmianling, is the first antipsychotic drug, creating the history of drug treatment of mental diseases. Since chlorpromazine was used to treat schizophrenia and mania in the early 1950s, it has entered the golden stage of psychopharmacology. The discovery of chlorpromazine has changed the prognosis of schizophrenic patients, and set off a non hospitalization movement in western countries, so that many psychiatric patients do not have to be forced to lock up in the hospital for life. The discovery of chlorpromazine is a milestone.

——In the 1950s, lobotomy was used in the field of psychotherapy.

Lobotomy is a kind of neurosurgical operation, including the removal of the connecting tissue of the prefrontal cortex. It is sometimes referred to as lobotomy, lobotomy and so on. Leukoencephalectomy was mainly used to treat some mental diseases from 1930s to 1950s. It is also the first psychiatric surgery in the world. Including schizophrenia, clinical depression, and other anxiety disorders. It also includes some people who are considered to have neuropathy, such as Moody, young and frivolous, etc.

——On November 1, 1952, the United States conducted the first hydrogen bomb principle test in the world. From the early 1950s to the late 1960s, the United States, the Soviet Union, Britain, China and France successively developed hydrogen bombs and equipped their troops.

Hydrogen bomb is a kind of nuclear weapon. It is a nuclear weapon that uses the energy of atomic bomb explosion to ignite the fusion reaction of light atomic nuclei such as hydrogen isotope deuterium to release huge energy instantaneously. Also known as fusion bomb, thermal nuclear bomb and thermal nuclear weapon. The killing and destruction factors of hydrogen bomb are the same as those of atomic bomb, but its power is much greater than that of atomic bomb. The power of the atomic bomb is usually several hundred to tens of thousands of tons of TNT equivalent, while the power of the hydrogen bomb can be as large as tens of millions of tons of TNT equivalent. It can also enhance or weaken some killing and destruction factors through design. Its tactical and technical performance is better than that of atomic bomb and has a wider range of uses.

story:

Letis is a US soldier who participated in World War II. World War II ended in the failure of the German camp. As a US soldier, the experience of the concentration camp had a great impact on letis’s outlook on life and made him suffer from severe post-war syndrome.

At the same time, letis is also the father of three children. In 1948, at the end of World War II, letis returned to the United States and served as a U.S. sheriff. Because of the deep trauma suffered in World War II, letis drank too much and ignored his wife suffering from severe depression. In order to attract his attention, his wife set fire to the apartment in the City and the family moved to the lake house.

After moving, letis still ignored his wife. One day, when he came home, letis found that his wife drowned her three children in the lake next to her home. Grief stricken, he lost his mind, or to help his painful wife free, he shot his wife in the abdomen, resulting in her death, set fire to her house, and became a mental patient suffering from schizophrenia and extreme delusion.

The court brought letis on trial. Although he was guilty of murder and arson, he was imprisoned on the island of confinement because he was mentally ill and could not be sentenced to death.

Confinement island is a unique island in the world. It treats prisoners and patients who have committed serious crimes and are also mentally ill. The island is not only equipped with guards, but also has excellent doctors in the field of psychiatric treatment at that time. The island is mainly divided into three wards – Zone A is male ward, zone B is female ward and Zone C is severe ward.

Letis is in area C. why?

In order to escape the painful experience in reality, the schizophrenic letis shaped another self in his mind and gave birth to a complete story – he rearranged his name in reality and named his “new” self Teddy. He fantasized that he was assigned to the confinement island to investigate the disappearance of a mental patient named Rachel Cerlando, who once stabbed his three children (in fact, it is a combination of the rearrangement of his wife’s name before she married him and his wife’s experience). This mission also has another important significance for him: Ted’s wife died because of a fire caused by laitis, a home decorator, and he is also detained here! At the same time, Ted suspected that there must be some unspeakable secrets in ash mental hospital on the island, such as brain washing experiment with terrible surgery!

After being detained on the island for two years, the medical staff found that every time a storm was coming, lestie would fall into this fantasy story. He repeated the story many times in two years. Almost everyone knew the details of the story clearly. Only he himself would forget it again and again like rewinding. At the same time, because of psychological trauma and escape from reality, letis is very sensitive. Many things lead to his violence. In addition, he was a soldier and trained professionally. He hurt almost all the people on the island. Two weeks ago, because of a man named George Noyce’s patient called him letis and beat him beyond recognition. Therefore, he became the most dangerous patient on the island and was detained in area C.

Because of the extreme violence and danger of letis, the inspection committee decided to take some measures, that is, to perform lobotomy for him and make him an “obedient” patient who will never be harmful.

Fortunately, Sean, the attending doctor of letis, and Cowley, the dean of Ashley hospital, are psychiatrists in the “psychoanalytic model”. In their view, the main identity of all prisoners on the closed island is patients. They oppose the inhumane methods of treating mental patients in the traditional “biological model”, and advocate listening to the voice of patients to help them treat them. Although it took time and trouble, they still tried to use the most advanced role-playing method at that time to treat letis, trying to restore his reason – that is, let him realize the story he designed, and then let him find out how unreal and impossible his story is.

Faced with great pressure from the traditional “biological model” psychiatry school, Cowley and Sean assured the inspection committee that if the experiment failed, they would agree to let letis undergo lobotomy.

Finally, one day, the storm is coming, and letis will begin to repeat his story. This time, some staff on the island are ready to cooperate with him in the play. Dr. Sean disguises himself as his assistant, protects him around him and records his illness. They used the ship used to transport patients on the island and pretended to be the ship that sent Sheriff Teddy from the mainland of the United States to confine the island. Although the ship was very shabby and shabby, and there were still shackles and handcuffs to shackle patients on the ship, letis, who indulged in his own story, would not have noticed these.

Because of his child’s drowning experience, letis could not help feeling sick and vomiting when he saw a lot of water. Dr. Sean tried to calm him down and handed him a cigarette – is there anything special in the cigarette?

Yes, there may be some conventional drugs such as chlorpromazine in the smoke, which is to control letis’s disease. If he doesn’t take these drugs, he will have a serious withdrawal reaction, not only shake his hands, but also have serious hallucinations, and even lose control and hurt people. Therefore, Dr. Sean thought of this method.

On board, Sean said he was sent by the Seattle Branch as Lao Lai’s assistant. Seattle is 3000 miles away from the confinement island. Rachel disappeared last night. Lao Lai appeared on the ship at noon today and an assistant who landed 3000 miles away. Lao Lai accepted it. Of course, he didn’t want to destroy his fantasy story.

In order to make the play more realistic, they equipped letis with a simulated toy gun. Once on the island, all the guards were armed to prevent the severe mental patient from suddenly getting out of control. At the same time, letis and Sean must hand in their guns, otherwise it would be bad for letis to find that they are toy guns. Poor Dr. Sean has never had the experience of wearing guns. It took the boss’s effort to take out the guns, which made the guards look at him with shame.

When driving through the graveyard on the bank, I saw a tombstone that said: remember us for we too have lived, loved and laughed. I remember we lived, loved and laughed. Of course, dead people don’t climb out of the ground and write such words. This actually reflects the attitude of the hospital treating felony mental patients – respecting them.

When the group came to the entrance of the hospital, the guards emphasized the characteristics of the three wards, which was explained by Dr. Cowley – because they would find a female nurse to play missing Rachel this time, and would deliberately show her horse feet, so that letis found that these horse feet had a lot to do with the ward. This is what will be said later.

At this time, many patients were moving in the courtyard. In Lao Lai’s eyes, they were all shackled and looked very gloomy and terrible – is this true? Of course not. Fast forward to the section where Lao Lai sat on the stairs at the end of the film. The patients moving on the grass had no shackles at all. In fact, Lao Lai’s “paranoia of victimization” had begun to cause trouble at this time.

Over the years, these patients have known letis. Some people greet him friendly, and some people who have been hurt by him are afraid to avoid him. These patients were accompanied by guards dressed in white, and there were guards around. Indeed, the special management method invented by Dr. Cowley enables these people who have committed serious crimes because of mental illness to live a relatively humane and free life here.

In letis’s view, these scenes indicate that there must be hidden secrets on the island.

Next, the guard took letis to see Dr. Cowley. The hospital specially designed a so-called pass for letis. If the pass is illuminated with infrared light, it can show whether the person is allowed to enter – in fact, it is just an ordinary iron door with lock, and the so-called infrared light is just an alarm light installed on the iron door, Anyone with a little common sense can see that such a simple device cannot be the so-called infrared recognition system. But it was the same. Letis wouldn’t notice. He didn’t want to expose the story in his mind.

Add the guard McPherson just now. He is not only a guard, but also a vice president. Interesting. The president is a senior psychiatrist and the vice president is a guard. This is the unique management method invented by Dr. Cowley – the combination of law, order and medical treatment.

There are many pictures on the wall of Dr. Cowley’s office. They record some of the methods used by the hospital to treat mental patients since its inception. Early biological model therapy did try to treat mental patients with extreme violence. Now they have relatively advanced treatment methods, including lobotomy used in the 1950s. “Even if they can’t be cured, it will at least bring confidence and peace to their lives,” Dr. Cowley told letis.

On Dr. Cowley’s desk, there is a model of human brain surgery, which, in letis’s view, has become a hint of conspiracy on the island.

When letis learned that these patients were murderers, he said to Dr. Cowley, “in my personal opinion, such people don’t need to give them a sense of peace”. In fact, this may represent the idea of most people, but Dr. Cowley’s answer was: “my duty is to treat patients, not their victims. I have no prejudice against them.”, This is also the source of power for Dr. Cowley to do everything he can to cure letis.

Letis finally mentioned Rachel in his fantasy story. He asked Dr. Cowley about Rachel’s disappearance. Cowley knew all the details of Rachel in letis’s mind. He introduced Rachel to the protagonist with his own situation. The general content was that Rachel ran away the day before. She was the most dangerous patient here, She once killed her three children, especially drowned them in the lake behind her home, and one pressed them into the water until they drowned, while Rachel’s husband died in Normandy.

Speaking of this, Dr. Cowley took out the picture of Rachel played by the nurse. Seeing this, letis was stabbed faintly. His brain flashed the terrible scenes of German concentration camps, so he began to have a migraine and asked the doctor for aspirin.

Knowing that this was one of letis’s symptoms, Cowley gave him some daily medicine (pay attention to the small cup of Medicine), and then continued to tell Rachel’s story: Rachel thought it was still her home in Berkshire. In her four years in the hospital, she never thought it was a psychiatric hospital. In order to imagine that her child was still alive, she constructed a complete fictional scene, Imagine all the people around you as various characters in your hometown

Dr. Cowley said this in the hope of reminding letis from the side. Letis blinked. Guess what he said? Instead of pursuing these key clues, he changed the subject and asked whether the hospital had searched the neighborhood.

Letis didn’t take over. As expected, Callie came prepared. When letis mentioned this problem, Callie told him all kinds of evidence that Rachel couldn’t escape the ward, such as locking the door from the outside
