Storyline

Of Two Minds explores the extraordinary lives, struggles and successes of three unique and compelling people living with bipolar disorder in America today. Through a combination of intimate verité and revealing interviews, we experience what it feels like to be bipolar - from exquisite feelings of grandiosity and sensuality to the depths of despair and depression. A journey from the painful to the painfully funny, Of Two Minds puts a human face on the illness, opening an engaging, harrowing and perception-changing view on those all around us who live in bipolar's shadows...our sisters and brothers, parents and friends, and ourselves. Written by Doug Blush and Lisa Klein

A division.
12 August 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A split personality, a personality of two entities. A division. Is that what bipolar is? Is bipolar a community treatment device or a locked in mental component to be treated on ER Wards? This movie takes the viewer into the lives of four individuals with a diagnosed serious mental illness. Each individual is unique. Their stories are unique and there is no dialogue between the four key players. Instead it is like each individual shares their own narrative with the camera in their own individualized fashion. This design of editing makes the parts of the whole a very structured whole. It is like tall skyscrapers reaching for the skies. The identities of each individual did come out and their unique identities versus the DSM label identities each did fall into an excellence. This movie is about recovery and exceeding societal expectations. It puts bipolar into a new light, one of humanity versus the sick role.
