We really don't encourage the use of movies as learning models at bpdfamily.
Some of the "old wives tales" websites like to cite Hollywood characters as examples of personality disorders - it is an excellent way to promote a victim mentality and the whole "predator and prey" saga. bpdfamily is more about healing than suffering and piling on.
People with BPD are inherently weak individuals struggling to survive and making a mess of their lives - not predatory monsters. None of the movies listed above are attempts portrayal a medical condition. Lets take two examples:Play Misty for Me - 1972.
Did Clint Eastwood attempt to portray Borderline Personality Disorder in Play Misty for Me
No. Eastwood was a rookie director. In the 70's, slasher films were popular - typically involving a psychopathic killer stalking and killing a sequence of victims in a graphically violent manner, often with a cutting tool such as a knife or axe. This was his interpretation of that theme. The script was originally conceived by Jo Heims, a former model and dancer turned secretary. No link to psychology. The movie was released in 1972 - BPD didn't even make it into the DSM until 1980. Nothing in the movie points to BPD like behavior - there is no portrayal of family abuse, suicidal ideation, self loathing, or cutting.Black Swan - 2010.
Jumping ahead 38 years... while Black Swam does an excellent job of portraying the terror related to psychosis, there are several professional reviews that point out the large amount of artistic license taken - notably that there are too many psychological issues going on with "Nina". She shows elements of an anxiety disorder with obsessive compulsive behaviors. She also manifests self-injurious behavior of BPD and some signs of an eating disorder. She dabbles with substance abuse. She has psychotic breaks if not outright psychosis. It is highly unlikely all of these elements could coexist in one person, especially someone performing as a ballerina at such a high level. Peanut cartoon series.
There is an amateur book at Amazon that makes the claim that Lucy from the Peanuts cartoon series is NPD. In the strip, Lucy often thinks ridiculous beliefs are true (i.e.: there's a different sun every day, snow comes up out of the ground, birds can fly to the moon and back); regarding them as "little known facts". NPD? Not sure.
