I have to write an essay about a film that revolves around mental illness (es). Any suggestions?

Here's a link that has lots of movies: en.wikipedia.org/.../List_of_films_featuring_mental_disorders
I can give you my views on some of the movies if you like. Or do you have a certain illness you were more interested in?
One of my favorite movies is Memento. It uses anterograde amnesia. There have been many scientific responses that say it was one of the most realistic representations of that illness in film.
There's a film called Spider with Ralph Fiennes. The list categorizes it in schizophrenia. That seemed like a very well represented portrayal of it.
I'm really into movies, so if you want to talk about any of them I'm open to the discussion. If you have an idea of where you want your essay to go I might be able to skim movies to focus more on. Good luck with your essay.2
