Complete Lunatics

Films with performances that are absolutely mental. To the point where you doubt the actual sanity of the performer in question.

I'm looking for people playing people rather than people playing monsters or anything like that. They have to be absolutely mental as well.

I've put Bug on the list even though I've not seen it but everyone goes on about Michael Shannon in it, so there you go.
