Psyche Goes To The Movies, a film series that looks at the portrayal of mental health and madness in film, continues this spring at the Belfast Free Library. Screenings are 4 p.m. on the second and fourth Sundays of the month in the Abbott Room of the library, 106 High St.

The film screenings are free and open to the public, and each will be followed by a lively discussion of the issues raised in the film. The series and discussions are hosted by Cheryl Fuller, a Jungian psychotherapist who lives in Belfast.

The next category of films shown looks at psychotherapy and psychotherapists and will begin with the film “What About Bob?” Sunday, April 11. Bill Murray plays Bob Wiley, the psychiatric patient from Hell who manipulates and ingratiates everyone and even fakes suicide in order to tag along on the family summer vacation of his new therapist, Dr. Leo Marvin (Richard Dreyfuss). The humor is in the escalating battle between Bob and Marvin, as each struggles to outwit, if not damage, the other.

The series will continue Sunday, April 25 with “Analyze This” in which a mafia kingpin (Robert DeNiro) develops acute symptoms of anxiety and depression and makes offers that a psychiatrist (Billy Crystal) cannot refuse in order to arrange treatment.

Upcoming films in the series will be: May 9, “Ordinary People”; May 23, “Mumford”; June 13, “Prince of Tides”; June 27, “House of Games”; and July 11, “The Unsaid.” For more information, call the library at 338-3884.
