According to the dictionary, schizophrenia can be define as:


  • "a serious mental illness in which someone cannot understand what is real and what is imaginary."
Some movies portrayed this serious mental disorder for a certain way we know the reality about this disease and to understand a bit what many people with this disease suffer. It's not easy to play a character schizophrenic, it requires a lot from actors to make the character credible.

Which of these impressive performances did you feel more empathy?

Sally Fields in “Sybil” a true story of a woman with 14 personalities.
“The Three Faces Of Eve” sets the benchmark for this genre.

...and i don't why?

I'm not mocking or discriminate anyone with this mental illness.
I don't understand why people are angry or affected by it.

I would argue some of the picks, because while Bateman's mindset suggests schizophrenia, it's hard to say what is the case there, while The Narrator in Fight Club (1999) is definitely not schizophrenic: he has a dissociative personality disorder and, as Wikipedia states it rather clearly: "Schizophrenia does not imply a "split personality" or "dissociative identity disorder" – conditions with which it is often confused in public perception". Apart from what is associated with his second personality covering its tracks Narrator seemingly has little to no hallucinations and generally thinks rather clearly. I'd rather argue that Donnie Darko is schizophrenic as well (because he likely is only from the point of view of most people), but he as diagnosed in the movie, so that counts. 

It should be noted that schizophrenia is one of the fewer mental illnesses which actually has a number of physical neurological symptoms.

You made good points. I kind understand the points that you made to unavailable the presence of this mental ilness on him.
Since there's difficult to determine if he is or not schizophrenic and he is more likely to have those mental ilnesses that you said,
I will deleted him from the list.  

Thanks for your explanation ;)

Ok, but could you explain, what "try kkk" means to the question of Mr. Torin at the reply we ommented to? Should that mean he shouldn't worry about and take it easy and laugh about it? Sorry, I'm not so into english that I could have understood this.

No, it doesn't mean that he needs to laugh.
The "giggling" it's a like "I had the same dilema" because on this list there are good performances which makes hard to pick.
You know, when there are so many thing that you like and someone say that you need to pick just one.

I'm English, which makes difficult to explain what I tried to say. Sometimes I don't find the English word to describe what I was trying to say because in every cultures there are certain expressions.

That explanation is good enough for me. ;) Maybe the best would have been 'same deal'? But don't judge me by this, I'm no person of english mother language. I would have written 'Same deal.' But that maybe be a wrong use of the words, I know.
