PS: Extreme Mental Conditions

Intro:

In some movies mental diseases are described by acting. Some of them are classics, but there are also new points of view when looking at people with psychological or psychiatric mental health problems. Some are funny, some look serious - some are serious. Which of these movies would you consider as your favorite? If you don't know any of them, please pick the one you're most interested in. Discuss here.

Rules:

Movies rated higher than 6/10 or with more than 40.000 ratings. No movies about people who just fake mental diseases.

I  like Rain Man for it's accuracy and the education of the brother.  I enjoyed What About Bob?  for pure fun and entertainment, and it is not impossible a situation to result.  I absolute abhor all movies where mentally ill are portrayed as the serial killers or other evil doers.  They are not reality, but people believe them and it is sick!

Yes, I also think that can be discriminating. But on the other hand these movies are sometimes suspenseful, so I devide between horror or crime movies that show an discriminating image of mentally ill people. These are for entertainment only and that's how it is. And there are movies that really deal with the problems of mental ill people. Most of them do it with dignity and do not cut the wire between human and human.

Ok, Shutter Island.
But only, because the main character is treated with dignity.
