Both Worlds: Born with Chronic Paranoid Schizophrenia (2013)


Kako živeti i preživeti paranoidnu shizofreniju. Za sve vas/nas koji nismo baš upućeni kako sve to izgleda i o kojim siptomima se radi evo prilike da makar privirimo. Imao sam priliku svojevremeno da se susretnem sa osobama koje boluju od ove teške bolesti ali su svi bili na lekovima tako da se nisu razlikovali od normalnih ljudi osim što su bili malko usporeni zbog tih hardkor lekova. Ako sam ikada u životu osećao empatiju, a to se kod mene zaista retko dešava, to je bilo tada kada sam razgovarao sa tim ljudima, jer jedno je obična shizofrenija gde čujete glasove i tako malo halucinirate, a skroz drugo kad se u priču ubaci i paranoja i proganjanje i šta sve ne. Sećam se jednog dečka koji je umislio da mu specijalci opkoljavaju kuću i ulaze na vrata i prozore, samo je mogao da vidi one crvene tačkice od laserskog nišana. Pitao sam ga jel' sad kapira da je to bila samo halucinacija, ali jok, on se i dalje držao te priče iako je bio na lekovima koji bi trebali da blokiraju takve psihoze. Dakle, nema tog psihijatra niti bilo koga koji bi ga uverio u suprotno. To samo pokazuje koliko su te halucinacije stvarnost takvim osobama, uostalom većina vas je gledala odličan film "Shutter Island", tako da taj film nije nikakva fantasy fikcija, to je stvarno tako. Čovek skroz izgubi osećaj šta je halucinacija a šta zbilja.


"Born with chronic paranoid schizophrenia, Charles Steinbach began hallucinating at the age of eight. He was diagnosed as a young adult and made what he calls a 'split-second, conscious decision' to 'become the best schizophrenic he could be.' Today, he is a successful speaker, author, life coach, father, and college student. This film tells his story and asks us to put a face, a name, and a life to a diagnosis."

Myra: The Making of a Monster (2003)


"Until her prison death in 2002, Myra Hindley was recognized as ‘the most hated woman in Britain‘. The public hatred towards her was so intense, that after she was arrested w/ boyfriend Ian Brady in 1966, for the murders & rapes of 5 children, the name ‘Myra’ almost disappeared from UK society.

UK’s Cannel5, ‘Myra: The Making of a Monster’ offers a unique glimpse into Myra’s life through news footage of the crimes, and personal testimonies from her associates & the reporter that worked the story and had to sort through the gory discoveries of the children’s bodies that were buried on the bleak Saddleworth Moor."

Frame 313: The JFK Assassination Theories (2008)


Ovoga vala nikad dosta, pogledao sam bar 15-ak dokumentaraca na zadatu temu i hoću još bre. Da snime još tolko sve bi ih overio. 9/11 je meni mala beba u odnosu na JFK conspiracy teorije. Neće se svi složiti sa mnom ali to i nije poenta. Cela ta priča je tolko dobro režirana da joj se ne nazire kraj pa makar prošlo i preko pola veka od atentata. Ubiše ga bre ko mačku, in the broad daylight što bi rekli anglo-saksonci. Valjda ćemo doživeti ta vremena kada će Ameri konačno otkriti ko je zapravo pravi ubica, a dotle uživajmo u ovim vazda zanimljivim dokumentarcima. Živeli!


"Frame 313 examines several theories that have been offered about who was responsible for the JFK Assassination including the single bullet theory, the CIA/Mafia theory, the Soviet Union/KGB theory, the Mafia hit theory, and the CIA/Anti-Castro theory."

Mind of a Rampage Killer (2013)


"What makes a person walk into a theater or a church or a classroom full of students and open fire? What combination of circumstances compels a human being to commit the most inhuman of crimes? Can science in any way help us understand these horrific events and provide any clues as to how to prevent them in the future?"


The Central Park Five (2012)


Directors:
Ken Burns, Sarah Burns

Ako su vam se svideli "Paradise Lost" i "Making a murderer", valjaće vam vala i ovaj masterpis.


"In 1989, five black and Latino teenagers from Harlem were arrested and later convicted of raping a white woman in New York City's Central Park. They spent between 6 and 13 years in prison before a serial rapist confessed that he alone had committed the crime, leading to their convictions being overturned. Set against a backdrop of a decaying city beset by violence and racial tension, THE CENTRAL PARK FIVE tells the story of that horrific crime, the rush to judgment by the police, a media clamoring for sensational stories and an outraged public, and the five lives upended by this miscarriage of justice."

OC87: The Obsessive Compulsive, Major Depression, Bipolar, Asperger's Movie (2010)


Directors:
Bud Clayman
Glenn Holsten

"Can you make a movie while having mental illness? Bud Clayman is doing it. Will making a documentary about your mental illness change your life?

Soon after college, mental illness interrupted Bud Clayman's dreams of a filmmaking career. Thirty years later, he's making the movie of his life. A story with universal relevance, OC87 is a wildly original film about pain and vulnerability, empowerment, and Bud's quest for belonging.

Throughout his youth, Bud's future was filmmaking. After college in Philadelphia, he headed to Hollywood in search of a break. Instead, he had a breakdown. As mental illness struck, it stuck. When distress and isolation set in, the diagnoses followed. For eight years, Bud lived in a therapeutic community.

Without waiting for his illness to vanish, Bud has reclaimed his quest as a filmmaker. As his camera chronicles the ups and downs of recovery, we also see the experience of what he calls "the fight inside my head." Behind the lens, a parallel journey unfolds as Bud the Director grapples with the challenges of making an incisive, highly personal documentary—a movie that he believes will transform his life.

When problems hit the fan, Bud sometimes feels defeated. More often, he draws strength and skills from therapy, humor, and relationships. Even so, he feels different, and the stigma of mental illness is fierce.

Meanwhile, directing this documentary film stretches Bud in ways that ultimately recast his quest. From the shadows of suffering, a portrait of imperfect courage emerges—a testament to acceptance, change, and hope.

The LA Times hailed OC87 as "uniquely inspiring." The New York Times called it "moving, penetrating" and The New York Post said, "it's easy to cheer his ultimate triumph.""
