Inaccurate portrayal of bipolar
What the character portrays is more like borderline personality disorder, not bipolar, and many people with borderline aren't like that, I speak from experience with both. Borderline is a wide range of different symptoms coming from childhood pain, some are more normal and functional, some are less. People who have bipolar are mostly not so violent, just feeling up and being creative, or depressed maybe creative, sensitive, intelligent, sleep issues, sometimes normal. Maybe can have trouble handling their emotions but I think majority do not kill or harm or else the world would be even crazier. I hope many people know that many people who've had bipolar have contributed greatly to humanity in all disciplines. People with borderline are also intelligent, creative, sensitive, etc. They all just need help, understanding, compassion, nonjudgement. Either way, people need to learn and get educated about mental health. It seems horrible to make a movie that is so misinforming. Another comment suggested a disclaimer and educational information aired before and during commercials.
