I am putting together an investigation to find out what purpose mental illness has within the narrative of film. The three films that I have chosen to focus on are Taxi Driver, Fight Club and Memento.

My initial thoughts on the subject was that Memento explores the idea of humanity, Fight Club the portrait of the 21st Century man and Taxi Driver, interrogating American society’s conception of male heroism.

I recognise that that there is more to the subject than these points alone but was very interested to gather opinions to contribute towards my research on the purpose of mental illness as means to explore themes in the narrative.
