I’m going to do an occasional recurring feature here where I recommend a movie that I think does a good job illustrating the human nature topics of this blog. This is the first installment.
Tonight Turner Classic Movies at 1 Am Eastern time is airing a movie called “Darling” starring Julie Christie. Try to watch it or DVR it if you’ve been enjoying the last two years of posts on this blog.
“Darling” is a great depiction of a Cluster B personality disorder, a true emotional vampire. It’s about a beautiful woman who likely suffers from Malignant Narcissism, Histrionic Personality Disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder. She idealizes, uses, and then devalues and discards men as she climbs to the top. She is utterly devoid of empathy and damaged in a very realistic way.
If you do manage to see it, share your thoughts in the comments, good or bad.
