Films that revolve around a protagonist in a dead end life serve as a cautionary tale to viewers Anonymous 03/04/2022 (Fri) 20:39:48 No.2364
Hey all, what are some films similar to these two?
Woah, Caden was not in a dead end life, Caden had every chance in that movie to make things work, twice, if not thrice. He had two daughters and still abandoned both, he had two potential partners and still rejected them. It's only after they both leave him that he regrets letting them go. The entire point of the movie is that outlook and decisions change things, you're not stuck in a dead end unless you think you are. It's almost antithetical to the genre you want.
>>2365 Are you forgetting about his (Caden's) mental illness(es)? Check this out: >Repetition compulsion is a psychological phenomenon in which a person repeats an event or its circumstances over and over again. This includes re-enacting the event or putting oneself in situations where the event is likely to happen again. This "re-living" can also take the form of dreams in which memories and feelings of what happened are repeated, and even hallucinated. >Repetition compulsion can also be used to cover the repetition of behaviour or life patterns more broadly: a "key component in Freud's understanding of mental life, 'repetition compulsion' ... describes the pattern whereby people endlessly repeat patterns of behaviour which were difficult or distressing in earlier life". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Repetition_compulsion
Motivational Growth - but it goes the "gf solves life crisis" route which ruins the movie. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ToRhJWIBZrE
>>2528 What an amazing and surprisingly obscure film! Thank you very much.
