32 Films That Begin With Leaving a Mental Institution

These 32 films tell the same story up and down the scales, cohering as a subgenre even as they overlap with other subgenres like psychodrama, slasher films, and romantic comedy.In conclusion, I find myself thinking of an oddly pleasant poem by Edna St. Vincent Millay titled "A Visit to the Asylum". The speaker in the poem reminisces about visiting an asylum as a child, presumably with her parents, and how the patients doted on her. It ends with this humorous exchange:"Come again, little girl!"...

The legend of Biggie Smalls' belt

In 1997, The Notorious B.I.G. (aka Biggie Smalls) visited the Manhattan offices of The Source, then the most influential hip hop publication in the world.

A couple weeks later, Biggie was killed in a drive-by shooting. A few years later on his last day at the magazine, Riggs instructed the office's ...
