The portrayal of mental illness in Stanley Kubrick’s films is a theme prevalent across his body of work. From psychosis and depression, to megalomania and sociopathy, his characters suffer from a wide variety of disorders. Kubrick’s films offer an honest and intense glimpse into those struggling with mental illness, more so than many filmmakers of his time. Through study of his films alongside comparisons with the “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition,” this study aims to psychologically analyze many of the characters in the Kubrick universe.
