This subtly chilling documentary provides an in-depth look at the Dutch government's clinical analysis of criminals to determine their mental competence, and/or any psychological aberrations in order to decide on treatment and sentencing. Given unprecedented access to examination sessions, clinical committees, and prisoners' viewpoints, director Olivier Koning has put together as unbiased a statement as possible, yet one cannot help but wonder if the Dutch are too functional, too clinical, too aloof and scientific in their procedures. Certainly the prisoners take offense at their treatment, even though it is meant to determine their sentencing and therapy.
