Passion Pit's Michael Angelakos Goes on Twitter Rant About Mental Illness and "Silver Linings Playbook"

When he’s not hitting the studio with Juicy J, Passion Pit frontman Michael Angelakos apparently has some pretty strong feelings about mental illness. Earlier this week, Angelakos took to Twitter to share his thoughts about David O’Russell’s Oscar nominated film, Silver Linings Playbook. Angelakos evidently took issue with the film’s depiction of bipolar disorder, calling it a “cheap use of mental health as legs for plot.”

The singer, who famously struggles with mental illness himself, has been holding a pretty extensive dialogue with followers for the past several days about Hollywood’s relationship with depression and the validity of O’Russell’s film. Check out a few highlights below.
