This site is currently undergoing reconstruction and expansion.
Started in 1999, the Psychmovies.com website has grown to include hundreds of films which deal with Psychology. The Movie Lists are being expanded to include multiple categories related to psychology, beyond just Psychopathology.
The movies on the Psychopathology lists relate to the portrayal of mental illness and its treatment. The accuracy of portrayal varies. This is intentional, as I believe that there is value in identifying what is inaccurate, as well as what conforms to diagnostic criteria or ethical guidelines for psychologists and other mental health practitioners.
Movies in other categories are suggested to allow for exploration of various psychological concepts. As always, the list includes only those movies with Internet Movie Database viewer ratings of greater than 6.0 (on a scale from 1-10).
The Psychmovies.com Store is newly added. Here you can purchase books related to psychology in the movies, recommended movie DVDs, and Videos on Demand for rental or purchase.
Enjoy your visit!
