There ain’t nothing like it!
I think the film “Welcome to Me” is not for everyone and I am not surprised that the reviews are rather divergent. It’s certainly a strange movie and one that might or might not appeal to you– probably depending on how much you are willing to watch a film that often makes you embarrassed and has a very, very dark sensibility.
When the film begins, Alice (Kristen Wiig) has just won the lottery. However, she is mentally ill and foolishly decides that now she’s rich, she doens’t need her medication any more. So, she stops taking it and soon is blowing through her many millions of dollars. What does she blow it on??? I self-financed TV show all about her! It has very little in the way of conventional structure and the show is crazy…and, oddly, people think it’s good. I assume they think it’s meant to be a comedy…but the crazy antics and total self- absorption they see IS Alice.
The film is a very interesting character study of a woman with a Borderline Personality–especially of one whose hold on reality is very tenuous and whose narcissism is extreme, even for a Borderline. I was impressed by this character as well as her psychiatrist (Tim Robbins) as it looks as if whoever wrote the film knew about mental health issues and/or consulted with mental health professionals. Usually in films psychiatrists and psychologists are more caricatures–goofy one-dimensional idiots. Robbins’ character is realistic, however– with appropriate borders and methods. As for Wiig, she was entrancing in this strange role.
I am not 100% in love with this film–it is, at times, tough to watch and its overall message is certainly strange and mixed. Also, I hesitate to recommend it to everyone because Miss Wiig does a nude scene in which she’s VERY nude….so be forewarned. An interesting film to watch if you feel like you’ve seen it all.
This movie is not only offensive, but damaging to those with BPD
The director & writer should be ashamed of this film. All it does is spread MORE misinformation, misrepresent a horribly excruciating problem, and on top of that, exploits those with it.
This is not even close to an accurate depiction of BPD, and this film will only do one thing- further stigmatize this horrible affliction, making people even more hateful & cruel, which is already a bad enough problem right now.
Their complete misunderstanding of the disorder is nauseating. Don’t see this movie. Don’t see any movie about a character with BPD, because it has always been done ridiculously poorly & has stigmatized those with it further. To a huge degree.
If you want to actually learn a bit about it, go to Wikipedia, and you will find a very accurate detailing of the disorder, without bias, prejudice or ignorance.
