Making A Killing: The Untold Story of Psychotropic Drugging

[jwplayer config=”Player1″ mediaid=”2773″]

 

Psychotropic drugs. It’s the story of big money—drugs that fuel a $330 billion psychiatric industry, without a single cure. The cost in human terms is even greater—these drugs now kill an estimated 42,000 people every year. And the death count keeps rising.

Containing more than 175 interviews with lawyers, mental health experts, the families of victims and the survivors themselves, this riveting documentary rips the mask off psychotropic drugging and exposes a brutal but well-entrenched money-making machine.

    Too much fucking music. It's like watching a entertainment movie of fiction, not another alt-documentary.

    Yes music is distracting. It's hard to concentrate when there's music blurring down your ear. Music is a distraction. Smart people don't appreciate being 'sold' information. We just want it straight. Stop diluting the message with silly, none relevant music.

    The info is really great but the conclusions drawn by the narrator are often stretched to reach a conclusion that none of the “experts” said. Even the voice they chose for the narrator really seemed like it was trying to force opinions to “sway” people’s views instead of letting the information do the talking, something that I can’t respect in the realm of conspiracy. Also, while I agree that psychotropic drugs is a very dangerous, industry almost entirely based around profit, I really don’t think this doc did a very good job at looking at both sides. For illnesses like schizophrenia, medications DO help and are necessary for those people to live even remotely healthy lives. Even though 99% of the industry is based around milking people for money and even “Dumbing them down”, there IS a necessity to the psychotropic drug industry to some extent (it could probably be reduced by 99% though) and I feel this documentary WAS lacking due to that bias. The film had great information but I believe it would immediately turn off most psychiatry or psychology professionals or honestly anyone who can’t read between the lines (which is most people). I believe it spent too much effort into “scaring people” than it did to simply inform them, something that a I would have hoped would not be the case with someone from “our side”.
