Mesmer Movie Review

Fantastic! The best movie I've ever seen! This portrayal of 1800s hypnotist Franz Anton Mesmer is killer! Alan Rickman is fantastic, whispering those lines with self-assured grace. He wasn't a wacko -- his strange energy experiments were legit! He got a bum rap! Costumes! Drama! It's... it's... it's incredible!

Er... where was I? Did you do something to me? Please don't tell me I'm going to act like a chicken periodically now.
