Jeff Goldblum is as charismatic as ever in the film "The Mountain," where he plays a smooth-talking doctor with an effective way of rendering people with psychiatric problems "innocuous" – his euphemism for a devastating medical procedure. Set in the 1950s, Goldblum's Wallace Fiennes is based on real-life lobotomist Walter Freemanan, an evangelist of the operation that consists of hammering spikes into patients' brains through their eye sockets to sever their prefrontal cortex. The film premiered at the Venice Film Festival, where it is in competition for the Golden Lion.
