It would be really cool to have a movie about this in a world where the government distributes these to people, and at first glance everything is fine, people with depression and antisocial disorder are being instantly treated and that’s great. But then you realize that there are groups of people abusing these drugs underground, like there will be people on happy all the time, people that use hope to delude themselves, or people that drug other people with love, and that true human emotions have been nearly wiped out. Then at the end it’s discovered that the government is using these drugs to control society and manipulate people into becoming soldiers by taking away their empathy and filling them up with trust for the government. So it ends in an uprising led by a resistance group who lead the people to realize that their humanity has been stripped and doesn’t come in a bottle.
Why aren’t you making movies omg
Nearly the complete opposite of Equilibrium. I’d love to see the dystopia come to fruition.
I believe this was covered in an episode of doctor who… but in the form of patches…
Awesome yarn-bombing artist Olek (previously featured here) has struck again, this time in San Francisco where she used her extraordinary crocheting skillz to completely covere the famous Doggie Diner heads in lots of colourful yarn.
John [Law] reports, “Olek wanted to work with a San Francisco icon. The Golden Gate Bridge wasn’t available this trip (the girl is AMBITIOUS so who knows…) but the second most iconic SF landmark(s) was!”
Once upon a time, there was a space outlaw who fell in love with the Space King’s daughter,and they both agreed they were meant to be together. The princess decided to run away with him and they planned to meet at their favorite meadow before they escaped. But it was a trap. The princess had lied and the outlaw was surrounded by the King’s warlocks. Filled with anger from her betrayal, the magic that was meant to capture the outlaw instead transformed him into a monster. And he escaped.
No guys, I need to stop and talk about something in this movie and how fucking revolutionary it was; something that I haven’t seen in a movie before or since.
This is a movie about a kid who leaves her birth family.
Not a kid who find that they have a secret lineage or something that allows them to find their ‘true family’ - this is a movie about a kid whose true birth family is made up of bad people. So she gets out. And that is played as the right thing to do. She isn’t punished for it or made to feel bad about ‘abandoning her family’. There isn’t an underlying ‘but they’re your family and you have to love them’ or ‘they’re your family and they love you even if they don’t show it well or do hurtful things’ message of the kind that I see OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER in media. Matilda gets out and lives happily ever after because of it.
We need a million more movies like this to counter the metric shit ton of movies that directly counter this message.
