Ride the Tiger & Pi

Recently saw an amazing documentary on bipolar disorder on PBS.

I won’t go into to much detail, as I think everyone who has any diagnosis or takes any meds should watch it. But it did give me a new insight into mania.

One of my favorite movies when I was younger was the black and white Darren Aronofsky film from the mid/late 90’s. I watched it again for the first time in years shortly after watching Ride the Tiger. It is still a great film, but has a very different feeling if you consider the possibility that at is about a mentally ill guy having a manic episode… Either way, you should check it out if you haven’t.
