I believe I’ve already answered the Million-Dollar question about why I blog. If you want to know, you got to browse through the other blog posts and read for yourself.
However, since I’ve already got your little attention here, let’s talk about something else. Let’s talk about things that I love to talk the most. Things around human life.
As you should probably have known that I spent my weekend watching a lot of movies. A lot of them. And you should also know about Post Movie Depression because I was really depressed this Monday morning.
Post Movie Depression Syndrome is a situation when you feel really depressed after watching some particular good movie. Doesn’t matter if it’s sad of happy, good or bad. If you feel depressed after watching a movie, you are probably having that so called syndrome.
Post Movie Depression Syndrome is not really documented as a medical term yet, but It gets its popularity during the time of Avatar. If you Google about it, you will find cases about people committing suicide after watching Avatar. The main reason for the depression is that the fictional world of Pandora is way too beautiful and that there is no where on Earth that can match it, hence the audience feels sad because they will never experience it in real life.
From my observation, the type of movies that trigger depression in me are those that involved elder brother showing unconditional love to his younger brother. Of course there are other types that trigger depression as well, but brotherly love is one immensely effective one. And my guess is that it’s because I will never have an elder brother. I’ve had a very close to a brother for a while when I was young. My cousin used to visit me for weeks and we were very close. When he left, I felt depressed for few days. So, it probably has something to do with nostalgia as well.
Movies often show impossible things. Impossible happy ending love stories, impossible future technologies, impossible and ridiculous past. However, there are some movies that have something that you do care about but you’ll never have. Those will strike you down to the ground.
So, another Million-dollar question, what is your depression triggerer movie?
