MENTAL ILLNESS PORTRAYED ON SCREEN
What makes it so appealing to the audience?
"For actors, it’s a cinematic gift, a chance to play a characteristic as well as a character. For directors, it’s a chance to explore the psyche in visual and narrative detail. For audiences, it’s a window into a world they will (hopefully) never experience. When combined in the just the right way, without histrionics or spectacle, the results can be incredible." - Source
"There’s a special place in my heart for the ones who were with me at my lowest and still loved me when I wasn’t very loveable."
"Self love is the very first romance"
"Who sees the human face correctly: the photographer, the mirror, or the painter?"
"Those who direct the maximum force of their desires towards the center, toward the true being, toward perfection, seem quieter than the passionate souls because the flame of their fervor cannot always be seen."
"I am the most beautiful doormat you have ever walked over."
"They say that I am a poet.
I wonder what they would say if they saw me from the inside.
I bottle emotions and place them into the sea for others to unbottle on distant shores
I am unsure as to whether I ever get my point across.
Or my Love."
"Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings."
