I have so many reviews and commentaries about movies that portray narcissism and other Cluster B disorders such as BPD that I realized it needed to be a topic in the header.
I am not including documentaries in this list, just theatrical films.


Beauty and The Beast (1991)

“Ordinary People” (1980)

“Boogie Nights” (1997)

“Terms of Endearment” (1983)


“Risky Business” (1983)

“Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” (1986)

“We Need to Talk About Kevin” (2011)

Article from another source about movies that portray NPD/other Cluster B disorders.
A Streetcar Named Desire
Black Swan
Lucy in the “Peanuts” comic strips (I know it’s not a movie, relax)
Mommie Dearest
Schindler’s List

Borderline Personality Disorder

“Welcome to Me” (2015)

“Mary Jane Harper Cried Last Night” (1977 TV movie)


“Inside Out” (2015) — not really about narcissism, but about emotions and how they work.

“LBJ” (2017)

      I didn’t. I’ve only reviewed a very few movies. I’m well aware this doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of what’s out there. Narcissism and psychopathy are in almost EVERY movie, when you think about it.
      Look forward to more movie reviews in the future.

    A beautiful biographical film about Edvard Munch:

    Can’t say if he had a ‘personality disorder’ and I’m no artist but can certainly identify with his character portrayed here.
