    Schizophrenia in Film (personally vetted)

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. This is the companion list to the main "search and dump" list: https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/schizophrenia+in+film+not+personally+vetted+list/minkin/ This is a list of films that I have personally reviewed and have found sufficient "evidence" to determine that they pass muster and contain a schizophrenic character. This is of course extremely difficult to do, as a non-professional + being unable to ask the character questions: "have your symptoms persisted for six months or longer?" - So these are all determinations that I can make with the available evidence. It is possible (I know as I have been doing so for six+ months) to read a schizo character or element into every single film. As a result, this list is only for films that have someone who meets the clinical definition of schizophrenia, which means they must meet TWO of the primary symptoms. The only exception is if the movie outright calls them schizophrenic, or if the film is about some historical figure who does indeed have schizophrenia. But this is all case-by-case - and as someone who thought they were God, I am the god of this list and will make the final calls, even in cases that are extremely borderline. I will try to be fair, but also be inclusive of many different perspectives. If you get 1000 schizophrenic folks in a room, you'll get 1,000 different ways that symptoms manifest. So something may or may not resonate with me, that will be truer for someone else. Here is the clinical definition of Schizophrenia: DSM-V Diagnostic Criteria of Schizophrenia 295.90 (F20.9) A. Two (or more) of the following, each present for a significant portion of time during a 1 -month period (or less if successfully treated). At least one of these must be (1 ), (2), or (3): 1. Delusions. 2. Hallucinations. 3. Disorganized speech (e.g., frequent derailment or incoherence). 4. Grossly disorganized or catatonic behavior. 5. Negative symptoms (i.e., diminished emotional expression or avolition). B. For a significant portion of the time since the onset of the disturbance, level of functioning in one or more major areas, such as work, interpersonal relations, or self-care, is markedly below the level achieved prior to the onset (or when the onset is in childhood or adolescence, there is a failure to achieve expected level of interpersonal, academic, or occupational functioning). C. Continuous signs of the disturbance persist for at least 6 months. This 6-month period must include at least 1 month of symptoms (or less if successfully treated) that meet Criterion A (i.e., active-phase symptoms) and may include periods of prodromal or residual symptoms. During these prodromal or residual periods, the signs of the disturbance may be manifested by only negative symptoms or by two or more symptoms listed in Criterion A present in an attenuated form (e.g., odd beliefs, unusual perceptual experiences). The real kicker here is the 6 month period - as most films are just a slice of life and not indicating that these have been ongoing issues. I am perhaps most flexible on the time element - as its going to be extremely difficult to pin this down for most all cases. I will probably ignore the time issue altogether - as its impossible to know whether someone is experiencing a "brief psychotic episode" vs actually has schizophrenia - and I'd far rather be more inclusive of even the brief episodes, then simply stick to the longterm clinical definition. But if you disagree with this assertion, then please do let me know (message me for any reason). If a character meets two of those, I will lean towards inclusion. If its a movie about a kid who talks to dogs, the kid will have to have one of the other symptoms as well. This is all subject to change, and if you disagree with my ruling - then please do message me and make your case - as I am 100% flexible on these things - but I've usually argued about it with myself for over an hour, so I'll usually have some solid evidence to back it up. The only other problem I might face in this is when psychosis is due to either drug use or delirium (usually alcohol withdrawl). I will keep these issues in mind (and have already done so, See: Lost in a Harem (1944)) - but I will know that that is yet another issue hanging over the head of this project that I must be aware of - as both can very easily mimic the schizo experience.

    The Top 10 Biggest Money-Losing Movies of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. The term "box office bomb" or "flop" generally refers to a film that is viewed as highly unsuccessful or unprofitable during its theatrical run, sometimes preceding hype regarding its production, cost or marketing efforts. To earn this distinction, the film must also fail to earn more than the reported cost of its production, distribution and marketing by a wide margin.
