Hmsss’s review published on Letterboxd:
"You remember what the doctor said that just because you're a person who's dealing with this illness doesn't mean I'm the illness itself. It's hard not to feel like that when everyone treats you like one."
Well idk where to start
At the first half of the film they showed us how extremely stigmatized mental illness is and how this stigma adds up to this person another heavy weight to carry alongside the exhausting package of not being in control of ur mind and life and not being able to tell what's real.
Schizophrenia and other mental disorders are often correlated with violence / villancy especially in movies
But this one showed us that they're humans that have dreams and talents
And wish that they could lead a normal life
I get it now. It's hard to let someone find you in all the dark and twisty places inside, but eventually, you have to hope that they do, because that's the beginning of everything
Iam not sure tho if I liked the second half of the movie, I felt like there was sth missing or that they' were in a hurry to wrap up the whole thing but it did make me cry, there were some smh intense scenes
When I checked the book's quotes I found out that there were some interesting themes missing or briefly mentioned in the film so I intend to read the book it already was on my reading list
So to sum up
We need more movies like this one but its a good one for a starter.
