Our city, state, national commitment to fixing broken mental health/illness systems falls far behind that of northern European countries. Broken is an understatement. This doc gave an insight into what it means to be in need of help like no other doc I’ve seen. Courageously, the family & friends involved share the immense effects of dealing w/this issue, both personally & legally w/courts & governments.
Strange that in our country (and eerily similar to our attitude towards guns) every person has a legal right to be crazy. We as a society currently have no (or little) responsibility (or political will) to intervene. It starts w/our President making national health & wellbeing – food, environment, infrastructure, medical & other services – the priority.
A worthy documentary —a story of real people and how things don’t always get resolved in the way they want them to. The documentarian is the sister of a man who we see goes through the difficulties of mental illness. I would have liked to see more of the brother when he was rational, instead of just still photographs–maybe more specific stories of when he was healthy. We only see him in his irrational state (where he can seem calm and conversational). An interesting story of the difficulties a family goes through when one member becomes irrational.
