Manipulative Rubbish

This is another example of where the score shown on IMDb (in this case 7.1) is no indication at all of the merit of a movie. Usually, my own rating is within a hair of the IMDb score; not in this case. This was 96 minutes of Hell for me. I didn't warm to any of the characters at all and I actively disliked most of them. Please, before anyone accuses me of not understanding or of being insensitive to mental illness, I am personally acquainted with it and have a much better understanding than most. This terrible movie made OCD and Tourette's syndrome look almost like fun; I have the impression that we were supposed to laugh every time Vincent went into one of his unconvincing profane rants or when Alex's OCD manifested in some particularly silly way. It probably wasn't the film-makers' intention to belittle the suffering of individuals affected by these conditions. But, all the same, this movie had at least the appearance of a comedy despite the fact that I didn't laugh even once. I had a complete lack of sympathy for the three sufferers and a dreadful desire for this lot of tripe just to end. Thankfully, I didn't pay much for the DVD. It's not one I'll ever watch again, so very poor was the movie. Please don't waste your time on this crap.

Awesome!

This is a truly beautiful and tender film. It Portrays three individuals with quite severe mental illnesses, and shows all of us a path to recovery via compassion and a sense of humor. The script is fantastic, and the acting/directing is sublime.Zoe Kravitz and Dev Patel are artists to be admired, but they outdo themselves in this film.

A beautiful, sympathetic look into the dark world of mental illness

I was absolutely blown away by this movie. I thought it was brilliantly done and is award worthy. Definitely a must see, especially for those suffering from any form of mental illness within their lives.

I had never seen any of these actors before but I thought they did an amazing job. I can definitely see how some people could be put off by this movie but you need to have an open mind and an understanding heart to truly appreciate it.

I love movies with a parent vs. child struggle and I love it even more when both the parent and child learn a lesson in the end and are able to settle their differences and see eye to eye. You are able to feel for all of the characters and the writing is truly poetic.

My favorite part in the movie was how music positively effected the moods of Alex and Vincent. I have heard that music can effect our brainwaves and I found it amazing that this was so comforting for them.

The only reason I am not giving it a perfect score is because I wish they had chosen to portray OCD in a manner aside from the "germ phobia." This is the most commonly depicted form of OCD but it is by far the most common. OCD manifests in many different ways and I wish they had chosen to illustrate that more in Alex. But I still think his transformation was brilliantly done.

There are definitely some disturbing elements of the movie but I feel that the beauty and growth that the characters experience far outweigh any of their tragedies.
