Well done, but ultimately deluded by the misperception of obvious mental illness
29 June 2018 | by tracephotostudioSee all my reviews

I have a nephew that suffers from the same exact mental illness. Call it what you will. The filmmaker and most in this movie want to characterize Dylan's perception of the world as an elevated way of being, a higher plain of existence. The sad truth is that his logic (and those like him) is an endless loop of inconsistent prattling that never leads to any certain conclusions. Always on the edge of brilliance, but never really reaching an epiphany of any kind. He is very much schizophrenic. That's the plain, simple, painful truth of it all that many want to write off as misunderstood. My Nephew with the same issues, walks the earth, damaging relationships, spending time in jail, walking the earth, hearing voices, getting into arguments, suppressing voices with drugs and alcohol, etc, etc, etc.

Is that misunderstood genius? Trust me, it's not. Seeing it first hand and watching a wonderful boy grow into a delusional man is a sad and painful experience, but it is what it is. Untreated schizophrenia.
