"Split" takes a step in this direction by positing that "mental sickness" might not always be an actual illness - but then takes two steps back by exploiting moviegoers' fears that people with unusual mental conditions can be unpredictably violent.
Split is a tight thriller with Shyamalan's usual mastery of mood, and with a dream role for any actor that McAvoy somehow - mostly - resists ramping up into camp; he finds the humanity, cracked or otherwise, in each of Kevin's personae.
