Movies about “multiple personality disorder”

The underlying mechanism of sleepwalking, multiple personality disorder and “demonic possession” is exactly identical – the autonomous neurocluster takes over the control of the man’s body. Sleepwalking, multiple personality disorder and “demonic possession” are just different manifestations/projections of the same phenomenon.
The difference between sleepwalking and multiple personality disorder is the following. In the case of sleepwalking switching between alternative personalities occurs when a man goes to sleep. And in the case of multiple personality disorder switching between alternative personalities occurs while a man is awake.
In multiple personality disorder usually alternative personalities have low level of intelligence, like a zombie, however sometimes alternative personalities have high level of intelligence.
Exactly the same is with sleepwalking – sometimes alternative personalities do have high intelligence.

Суд встал на защиту юноши, и оправдал Миллигана. Однако многие американцы с таким решением суда не примирились. До сих пор идут споры, кто он Билли Миллиган – гениальный мистификатор или жертва?
