Mad Girls (Crazy Like Me)

Mad Girls (Crazy Like Me) by ZYNAB

Favorite narratives about/featuring women in hysteria and delirium, women who have visions and talk to God or the Devil, women who talk only to themselves, women whose deep sorrow and anger warp them in strange and terrifying ways. Films about Madwomen, Mad Women, Women who are Mad.

This is a list in progress. I know there are a number of lists like this on here but I wanted to make one that features mostly films as well as actresses that I feel don’t get enough love, with an emphasis on early film and melodrama.
