This list concerns movies related to characters having a NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder). In this list, we are trying to collect a bunch of movies having the following criteria:

Main Character having these 9 following criteria’s:
1. Grandiosity with expectations of superior treatment from others
2. Fixated on fantasies of power, success, intelligence, attractiveness, etc…
3. Self-perception of being unique, superior and associated with high-status people and institutions
4. Needing constant admiration from others
5. Sense of entitlement to special treatment and to be obedience from others
6. Exploitative of others to achieve personal gain
7. Unwilling to empathise with other’s feelings
8. Intentively jealous of others and the belief that others are jealous of them
9. Pompous and arrogant demeanor

The movies is preferable based on:
a. Personality and inner life of the main character must be important to the plot of the film
b. The main character should not undergo a complete transformation of personality (although some development in character was acceptable)
c. The film should not directly be about psychiatric condition or substance abuse, or represent a complete one-dimensional picture of a person (e.g. a comedy)

We have three favourite movies: To die for (Gus Van Sant), Swimming pool (François Ozon) and Monster: Alieen Wuournos (Patty Jenkins)

If you have any suggestion, feel free to drop us a line.
Thanks
