Okay, this is really random and out the blue but I couldn't not write about it, you know? I can't get this movie out of my head, it is incredible. I love it so so so much.
I don't know how to say this but I've "come across" mental illnesses before and I hate how it's so conflicted. No, I hate how everyone is so conflicted about it. It seems like it's completely normal to visit a doctor when you have the flu and you get medicines and you take them. But people don't see it as a daily thing or a minor daily error when you have chaos in your head, you visit the doctor and you get medicines for it. I once myself believed that there were no mental illnesses. I believed there were only weak people. And I was so wrong. I've got that insight many years ago.
With that in mind, I am only nineteen now. I do not have a great knowledge about how this world works or how people work. But I do know there are many different kinds of feelings and emotions and there are different kinds of mechanisms in everyone. No one works the same. So it's kind of hard to fix someone with an error in those radars. Because well, how do you know what someone needs when there are no two equal cases? But also, how do you know someone is 'not right'? This does not only concern mental illnesses but equal rights as man and woman, equal rights for straight and gay, for short and tall, for white, yellow and black.
I am not the first to throw a stone. I've had many prejudices before. I struggled with what to believe, who to believe in. Hell, I still do. But I do know that I like to be different. Even if that means a little chaos from time to time. I realize this is not cohesive at all and actually doesn't say much about the movie but I hope that people will see this movie and realize that chaos is not to be judged. Well, nothing or no one is to be judged.
On a lighter note: this movie is perfect. Have you seen it? What did you think of it? If not, will you see it?
