A list of films where love creates in its characters a spark of insanity; from the wild, spontaneous bursts of expression in films like L’atalante (1934), Pierrot le fou (1965) and Mauvais sang (1986), to the great depression, dark desires and violent obsession of films like The Blue Angel (1930), Vertigo (1958) and Lolita (1997). Where Men and Women are willing to destroy themselves (and others) to satisfy those feelings; even placing the need to love (and to be loved) above their own self-preservation.
