The President's Analyst
A renowned psychiatrist (James Coburn) is tapped to treat
the leader of the free world but is made a target by government agents and a
victim of extreme paranoia as soon his duties have been completed. The
President's Analyst is an odd, trippy satire. Marred by its psychadelia, it has
unflatteringly dated and Coburn gives a performance that is equally broad and
strange. Some humorous moments do arise, particularly with a suburban New
Jersey family with whom Coburn makes his escape.
