Call Me Crazy: A Five Film
This is a powerful film that takes on mental illness in 5 short stories. The stories deal with several disorders, from schizophrenia to bipolar, depression and PTSD. Those types of family issues, the support (or lack thereof) of friends, alienation, finding help and, sometimes, dealing with legal consequences are all part of the surrounding issues of mental illness that the collection does an admirable job of portraying.
In your paper, address each of the stories. Discuss the realities of each illness. If you aren't sure, do a little research on each disease. What do you see as the main purpose of the film? Did it help you understand mental illness? Discuss.
