Can you tell me good movies/series about mental illnesses.
>>
>>26235507
Silver Linings Playbook is alright. It is interesting to me since I was misdiagnosed with bipolar. It is now permanently on my record when I really have depressive psychosis.
>>
>>26235507
I was trying to find something related to agoraphobia, but I never found something good
>>
>>26236316
Monk is a great tv series that deals with obsessive compulsive and anxiety disorders, I believe the main character has an agoraphobic brother.
>>
>>26236400
Thanks, I'll watch
>>
The Machinist? I guess
>>
>>26235507
Taxi Driver is the ultimate robot movie
Machinist is pretty good but it was pretty long too iirc
>>
>>26235507
One flew over the cuckoos nest
A beautiful mind

Two great movies about mental illness very sad though
>>
Homeland is not 'about' mental illness, but it is the most realistic portrayal of mental illness ever on television. This is coming from a schizophrenic.

Watch this movie. It's about a wealthy suicidal NEET who hangs out with an old lady and the problems they face. Super comfy.

This is my favorite.
I'm excited about season 2.
>>
>>26236934
It's coming out in April I think. It apparently won a bunch of awards, too. I got the whole first season onto a USB and have rewatched most episodes but still have no idea wtf is up with his dad.
>>

This show is literally me. I work in IT, I'm scopophobic (fear of attention), I wear a hoodie up literally everywhere (coping mechanism i'm attached to)

Girl, Interrupted
Literally my favorite move ever
Well idk how focused you want it to be on the mental illness itself

>One flew over the cuckoos nest
I made the mistake of reading the book first. The writing style is a bit difficult sometimes, but it was definitely much better than the movie.
>>
>>26237016
>focused on the mental illness

more like focused on Angelina
>>
>>26235507
The Sopranos is the greatest tv show to ever air and it deals a lot with depression, anxiety, and panic attacks. It throws other mental illnesses such as alzheimers and homosexuality in there too.
>>
>>26236726
>A beautiful mind
Yes vote here
>>
>>26238348
Only ever read the book and I can say without a doubt it is my favorite of all time. What about the style did you find difficult?
>>
but there are so many mental illnesses OP, gives specifics
>>
The movie Frank is a pretty cool portrait of mental illness and trying to fit into society.
>>
Taxi Driver and Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer are the only interesting films about antisocial personality disorder that actually portray it as a miserable experience with no redeeming features. The rest all add lipstick onto the characters.

Birdy has to do with a full blown autist who is obsessed with birds being v& and his friend tries to fix him with mixed results iirc.

Also the twilight zone can be considered about mental illness since you're never really sure what is real and what is imagined.
Courage the Cowardly Dog is kinda the lite cartoon version.

A lot of japanese horror is mental. Higurashi being the first that comes to mind.

Six Feet Under. Depictions of relationships between the mentally ill and caretakers. Everyone has their faults and baggage. Forgiveness and support is somewhat common. Controlling behaviors, selfishness, abuse, manipulation, resentment, and hatred are shown. It is mostly a show about how terrible people can be.
>>
>>26236726
voting for aesthetic mind

As Good As It Gets is a decent portrayal of the misery and pain of untreated mental illness.
>>

It's Such a Beautiful Day. I fucking cried.

Le Feu Follet (The Fire Within is the English title, I think) is pretty good. It deals with a suicidal alcoholic who is facing who he was.
>>
>>26235507
Check out Enemy with Jake Gylinhal.

It looks like a mental illness to me...

Sorry, the thread was on page 11 and I wanted to post this. It's about a bridge in the US where a lot of people kill themselves. Brooklyn Bridge, I think, based on the weather conditions of the cover of the movie. I've never seen it, but a few robots have recommended it in the past. I believe it actually talks about suicide and depression as a mental illness, and not as a "tragic accident, if only there was something we could've done :'^( #rip" like so many normies act.

Hannibal (the tv series)

Agree with most suggestions here.

Marwencol (Documentary)
Fearless (1993)

There's one where Adam Sandler plays a guy with severe ptsd i forget what it's called but it's really good. Wait no i remember it's called reign over me.
>>
>>26243080
Agreed.

If you want anime about mental wrecks EVA and Welcome to the NHK are the standard go-to's.
