“Split” Decision

As I continued to hole up in the movie theater last weekend and watch almost every movie showing currently I next went to see the movie “Split”. It is about a man who has Dissociative Identity Disorder and proceeds to kidnap three girls while his many personalities battle about how to handle the situation. However, I felt that they showed this disorder in a really bad light by making it seem that anyone who has this uncommon disorder to be violent. Also, nobody in this movie seems to take this disorder seriously, they all play it off and act as if these people are only crazy in their heads. I feel like this is representative of the way that schizophrenia is handled especially in the few instances where it resulted in violence. Instead of blaming the gun that is used and questioning gun laws, there needs to be better care of people with schizophrenia as well the disorder itself needs to be taken more seriously overall.split-james-mcavoy-1
