-One or more characters/people in these movies could be diagnosed with a DSM disorder (see NOTES after each title in list form for my best hypotheses)
-The disorders range in severity
-Not all of these depictions of mental health issues are accurate, or "serious," and not all of these movies are good.
- "So-called" before a diagnosis reflects my opinion that what we see does not correspond to the reality of the disorder, or was an incorrect diagnosis stated in the film (e.g. labeling women as schizophrenic in the 1940s-50s)
-Disorders in these categories are not included: sexual and substance abuse disorders; general "psycho killers" or serial/mass murderers; any disorder depicted in a horror movie context
