Whoa, Sean. I usually turn to your reviews for fresh insight that tend to not be too affected by the mainstream mindthink, but I could not disagree more. As someone whose life is pretty much dictated by those affected with mental illness, I thought this movie was on the mark. I could nitpick a few things, but it is a MOVIE! Opinion is one thing, but I fear your reviews are venturing too far into “Film is truth, and truth is ugly/ I am a hipster and hipsters do not suspend disbelief unless it is sci-fi” territory. Relax, dude.
