Re: An Index to Minds on Film
I've got a few suggestions for other films to review:

Robot and Frank (2012) - dementia
Clean, Shaven (1994) - schizophrenia
Re: An Index to Minds on Film
I also have another auggestion:
Waltz With Bashir deals with the author's/director's PTSD and documents it in a fascinating way, yet true to the psychiatric concepts.
