    Default Films featuring mental health and illness

    What do you think are some good films featuring mental health and illness that you've seen? I think that The Soloist is among the best that I've seen, and possibly also Fight Club, I've always thought of that as a movie about a guy who experiences some sort of psychotic break or psychosis like schizophrenia.

    I think A Beautiful Mind revolved around a brilliant Mathematician, John Nash, having Schizophrenia.

    I recommend "The Machinist". It's pretty clear from the start that the main character is on the verge of a total mental break down, suffering from extreme insomnia and paranoia. The film revolves around slowly revealing what led him to this state.

    too lofty for me to attain.

    There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.

    Silence of the Lambs

    It's about an incarcerated flesh eating psychopathic psychiatrist who assists an FBI agent to capture a gay serial killer.

    Ironically the flesh eating psychopathic psychiatrist is a anti hero of the movie.

    Girl, Interrupted is a good one.
