Two geniuses, one bewildered, the other enlightened.
The meeting between such prominent personalities, each one so unapproachable within their respective fields; two men that influenced and left their mark to posterity...
From this confrontation many intriguing questions can emerge:
— What were Mahler's true aims at asking for an appointment with Freud?
— How their meeting came to be?
— What unusual details may have been broached?
— How that day affected their lives from then on?

As a film student I praise James Healey for his first step into his actual filmmaking career. It's not easy overcome these first efforts, which probably won't reach perfection. But if it didn't happen, there wouldn't have learning or reason to keep studying. Myself would be proud to release my first short film, and I'm sure Healey is. By the way, what I liked the most in Mindless were the photography and editing, and I'm looking forward to see his further steps.
