Two films with Seizures come to mind off the top of my head:
        Cleopatra (Liz Taylor version, Julius Cesar has one)
        Othello (Olivier version)

Subject: Seizures in films?


I'm working on a list of films that depict epileptic (or other types) of seizures, or at least figure seizure-pattern characters prominently in the narrative.  A few examples:

The Andromeda Strain
Mean Streets
La Vie du Jesus
24 Hour Party People
A Matter of Life and Death (aura and hallucination)

I'd appreciate any more suggestions...
