Mental health is a very popular topic in all aspects of media right now, and there are a myriad of films that explore it.
You or Me is interesting as it doesn’t shy away from the messy side of mental health. The mania, the pain, the self abuse. It selves into it all and that’s what makes it honest and relatable.
The simple setting helps focus on dialogue and performance which is what really drives this film. The lead actor provides stark differences in his performances of each character but also cleverly keeps certain traits so we understand that this is the same person.
The manic flashes work well to break up the film and provides another layer to the piece.
An interesting and intelligent film that explores its topic with honesty.
