It feels like a journey of self-discovery; Clayman constantly reminds us of how difficult that journey is.
The film brings us vividly inside the life - and head - of its determined hero, Bud Clayman, as he depicts the process of what he calls "getting normal."
Through it all, Clayman struggles to keep himself, and "OC87,'' on track - and it's easy to cheer his ultimate triumph.
This moving, penetrating documentary records his attempt to describe his conditions, confront them and learn to manage them.
A work of advocacy, no doubt. But it transcends those parameters, and the condescension such a description connotes, connecting Clayman's struggles to the outside world in smart fashion.
Just because we hope for someone's therapy to succeed doesn't mean that we want to sit in on every session.

A warts-and-all biopic about a cautious, creative genius burdened by a vivid imagination apt to take superstitions like 'Step on a crack and you break your mother's back' very seriously.
Stunning example of the redemptive power of art. Despite his considerable disabilities, the subject of this documentary understands what goes into a powerful film. Raw, honest, and engaging, it is the definitive account of what "madness" is about.
