Teger, how long has it been since you read the book? There was plenty of textual evidence to suggest he was mentally ill in general (disordered thoughts, eating sand on beach), and imagining his crimes in particular (though I can't say where without a reread myself). I felt the movie perfectly captured this -- and the book's sense of humor -- though BEE himself is happiest with Roger Avary's Rules of Attraction.
