Best depictions of insanity

Think James Macavoy from Split, Vincent D'Onfrio as Gomer Pyle, or Robert Denieo as Travis Bickle. What are some of the best portrayals of mental illness or insanity in movies you remember?

Have to agree with Heath Ledger/Joker and Jack Nicholson/Shining. They were done very well imo.

good choices. there's a lot of crazy out there. it involves people using mental gymnastics to justify their actions and motivations. it's not just about the cartoonish raving lunatics. it's people molding together and convincing eachother it's ok to do what they do and invent problems and injustices that they feel force them to take action

it's getting worse.
