There's plenty of jazzy paisley shirts, flamboyant velvet suits and on-the-nose music cues to denote its psychedelic 1960s setting, but these elements do little to soften Laing's eye-raisingly invasive and possibly inappropriate approach to his patients.

It's elevated above bog-standard biopic fare by the performances.

In this touchingly funny, quietly heartbreaking biopic, David Tennant excels as the complex and flawed Laing.

David Tennant is on pugnacious, mercurial and beady-eyed form in this very interesting and absorbing film.

Mad to be Normal's pieces don't quite fit, but like Laing himself, it's never boring.

David Tennant [plays the role] with conviction and a nice Glaswegian drawl, but the film is a dodgy business that makes things up -- including a pregnant girlfriend (Elisabeth Moss) -- for no good reason.

Tennant's performance is strong, and he gives energy to a script that jolts in different directions looking for focus.

Tennant is as watchable as ever, resplendent in migraine-inducing psychedelic shirts, walking a fine line between radical visionary and arrogant chancer.

A thought provoking biopicture focusing on the countercultural life and work of the controversial Scottish psychiatrist R. D. Laing.

Tennant is so commanding you can't tear your eyes away from him.

It's fascinating and particularly well cast but, despite Tennant's watchable efforts, the decision to concentrate on the Kingsley Hall years rather than more of Laing's life proves a frustrating one.

Mad to Be Normal boils a fascinating subject down into a slightly clunky, simplistic bio-drama.
