  • I strongly agree, Sera. I am very disappointed to see that this website has published an article that sees the movie positively. While the movie does suggest that the “mentally ill” are troubled for psycho-social reasons instead of innate reasons, it still shows a world where the “mentally ill” are just one or two missed doses of neuroleptics away from going on a stabbing spree. I have been appalled by the positive response society has had to the movie, and now that even Madinamerica.com has written approvingly of it, I am now just confused that they have missed what is so wrong about the film. Maybe the editors never saw it.

    The average viewer is going to come away from the movie saying, “Better to keep them medicated… maybe even locked up.”
