“Anything new? Let’s see, well… Facebook went public and Edward Snowden went private. Kim and Kanye had a baby, so now there’s another Kardashian to not keep up with. Paula Deen is out, gay marriage is in, and a teacher in California’s out for letting her students get it in. Justin Bieber got a hit and run, Chris Brown got a hit and run, Rihanna got hit and still didn’t run. Oprah gave Lindsey $2 million. Cunnilingus gave Michael Douglas throat cancer. Michael Douglas gave guys everywhere another excuse not to do that. Egypt went crazy, Amanda Bynes went crazier, and the NSA checks our phones like a crazy ex-girlfriend. Oh, and Texas hates women, Florida hates blacks, and everyone hates everything with the exception of Angelina Jolie who is totally awesome.”
I’m Not Crazy is a found footage compilation film comprised of clips from the internet (interviews and paparazzi footage) that investigates Amanda Bynes’ chilling story and reveals the darker side of Hollywood. In the age of social media, her struggle with mental illness was turned into a laughing stock and no one really knew how badly she was suffering. On top of that, the paparazzi aggressively hounded Amanda and made her more paranoid than ever. Paparazzi have completely violated her boundaries and continually harass her even though she has no desire to be famous. This is the story of Amanda Bynes, a girl who desperately tried to stay normal in a crazy world.

Don’t believe the reports about me being arrested. It’s all lies. I was sexually harassed by one of the cops the night before last which is who then arrested me. He lied and said I threw a bong out the window when I opened the window for fresh air. Hilarious. He slapped my vagina. Sexual harassment. Big deal. I then called the cops on him. He handcuffed me, which I resisted, quite unlike any of the reports stated. Then I was sent to a mental hospital. Offensive. I kept asking for my lawyer but they wouldn’t let me. The cops were creepy. The cop sexually harassed me, they found no pot on me or bong outside my window. That’s why the judge let me go. Don’t believe any reports.
