People Say I'm Crazy

Rating:No Rating
Release Date:January 1, 2003

Description: Along with his sister, Katie Cadigan, John Cadigan directs People Say I'm Crazy, a documentary revolving around his own struggle with schizophrenia. As a child, Cadigan enjoyed no small amount of popularity -- he was both an athlete and an artist -- but by his senior year in college, he was diagnosed with severe schizophrenia and barely escaped spending his life inside of a mental institution. This film documents Cadigan's medical milestones, as well as setbacks, and captures the young man in stages of rehabilitation, including the search for a suitable antipsychotic drug regimen and ECT (electro-convulsive therapy) sessions. With support from his doctor and family, Cadigan managed to re-enter society and begin what would become a successful career as a woodcut artist. People Say I'm Crazy was aired on HBO in the summer of 2004, and was co-produced by Oscar winner Ira Wohl.~ Tracie Cooper, All Movie Guide
