Adapted from J.G. Ballard's infamous 1968 novel, The Atrocity Exhibition is a brave, unsettling and unconventional film. In a mental research institution, things have gone terribly wrong. A doctor has enlisted patients and staff in staging a series of bizarre micro-dramas. Is it a record of his own mental breakdown, or a collapse between the outer world of reality and the inner world of the psychopathologies which inhabit us all?
