The crazy thing is, you're not crazy.
Diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, Susanna Kaysen gets sent to a mental institution for a short stay but spends the next year avoiding her fears, descending into the skewed world of people who truly belong on the inside. Lisa Rowe is a seductive and dangerous patient who forces Kaysen to face what she's really afraid of.
Hey, I just met you...
And this is crazy...
So here's my number...
So call me maybe!
Please, if you're this crazy...
Don't call me baby...
Sorry, I don't know where that came from...
This is like the chick flick version of One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest. Only this isn't a chick flick...though it has a lot of chicks in it.
This has to be one of the most awesome casts ever. I mean, just LOOK AT THIS CAST: Winona Ryder, Angelina Jolie, Whoopi Goldberg, Angela Bettis, Clea Duvall, Jared Leto, Jeffrey Tambor, Vanessa Redgrave, Brittany Murphy, Elisabeth Moss, FUCKING CASTIEL FROM SUPERNATURAL!!!
If you didn't realize by now, the acting is excellent, especially from Jolie who shocked the…
If Jared Leto asks you to run away with him to Canada, you go with him, Susanna. You just go.
I just really have a soft spot for movies about mental illness and mental hospitals. And Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie are goddesses in this movie. That is all.
This movie was really intense. If any of you have seen "One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest" then this film is really similar but more like... the girl-version of that. I'd actually go as far as to say that they go hand-in-hand. Most of the characters are represented in both movies.
I really can't say which one I like better though, they were both great and very intense.
The movie follows a young woman (portrayed by Ryder) named Susanna Kaysen (who is also the author of the book of which the movie is based on) during a year of her life that she spends in a psych ward. It illustrates the life in a psychiatric hospital and talks about the…
I have mixed feeling about this movie.
I am going to say about the two beautiful ladies in this movie
Winona Ryder she was just perfect for this role she played with her madness inside her.
Angelina Jolie You deserved the Oscar.
I dont care what the critics say. I relate to her so much that it makes me cry just thinking about it.

If this film didn't have the outstanding performances by Angelina Jolie as Lisa and Winona Ryder as Susanna this film would just be very average. We all know this story of being put into a mental hospital or with people who have mental problems. Films like "Short Term 12", "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" and "The Hours" tackle issues that are in this film a lot better but once again those performances are just mind blowing to me. Especially Jolie who has only done one other good performance in the film "Changeling" but this blows that out of the…
Aside from the great performances from Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie, there is too much fluff and melodrama to be found, despite the weighty themes the film tries to explore.
I know that I loved a film when my review is as simple as "Oh my God". No wonder Angelina Jolie won the award. Lisa Rowe is mesmerising and Susanna is a cool feature creature.
Again, a great movie but one that I didn't get. I didn't get attached to the characters and the plot never really picked up for me.
This is really heavy handed, isn't it?
A very engaging and haunting film about a young woman who is sent to a psychiatrist hospital as she deals with herself and the people around that features a star-making performance from Angelina Jolie.
La historia de cuando Winona Ryder se arrepintió terriblemente de haber compartido pantalla con Angelina Jolie, porque se la comió viva con la mitad de minutos en cámara...
I'm usually kind of skeptical about mental-illness realted movies. They tend to glamorize them, be very inaccurate and the characters "cure" from falling in love or some stupid thing like that. Silver Linings Playbook, It's Kind of a Funny Story.... blah.
Weirdly, I liked this one. It's so fucking sad to see all those girls being as crazy as hell. There couldn't be any less glamour in that (because, even if it appears that movie directors and producers don't know it, mental illnesses aren't glamorous).
The photography and the script are great, but Jolie is the pearl of the movie. Lisa isn't an easy character to play, but she does it fantastically.
This movie reminds me of a very specific time in my life, when I was a teenager and scared of the future and I very much identified with Susanna. Winona is great and Angelina knocks it out of the park. And I miss seeing Whoopi Goldberg in movies, because she's great in this too. Love the soundtrack.
