Siggy Rating System

Whether you give credit to Freud’s theories or deduce his insights to those of a rambling cocaine addict, you can’t deny his appeal.  Principles rooted in psychoanalytic theory (i.e. repression, denial, etc.) continue to hold weight and are still discussed on doctors’ couches 123 years since their inception.  For this reason I want to pay homage to Freud by introducing my new rating system which shall describe the level of therapeutic merit in films.   All movies reviewed from here on will be rated as such.  Behold, the Siggy’s!
