|Dr. Morgan||Gregg DaCosta|
In this short, we watch Dr. Morgan counsel three patients. One is dealing with a verbally abusive partner, the second PTSD from interacting with an aggressive cop, but things don’t really get interesting until David. David is Dr. Morgan’s last patient in the short who apparently knew him in college. But, rather than David talk about the present, he does the past, and what he speaks about raises a major red flag.

On The Fence
It Doesn’t Get Good Until The End
As much as you recognize the heartache and drama of the first two patients, they’re kind of dry. You don’t get an intensely emotional experience. It’s just sad and unfortunate stories. However, then comes David’s, and you’re just like, “Where is this going?” and as David hints to something bad happening, you start leaning in, and then no sooner do we get to the climax, it is over. Leaving you feeling almost bamboozled.
Our Rating: Mixed (Divisive)
Therapy buries the lead in such a way that you might be tempted to drop it before it gets interesting. Henced the mixed label.
