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.
