Cinema's Sinister Psychiatrists: From Caligari to Hannibal by Sharon Packer (Paperback, 2012)

Packer interweaves film history with psychiatric history, highlighting cinematic portrayals of psychiatrists who embodied critical issues faced by the field of psychiatry, such as deplorably run asylums and involuntary treatment, during various periods in the past century. Perhaps the quintessential sinister psychiatrist discussed by Packer is Dr. Hannibal Lecter, the star of five films to date, including Hannibal and Silence of the Lambs. The films portray Dr. Lecter as a psychiatrist who severely mistreats his patients, for example, by using a combination of drugs and hypnosis to convince his patient in Hannibal a pedophile receiving court-ordered treatment to cut off his face and feed the flesh to the dogs.

For Packer, screen psychiatrists are not created from imagination alone.
