Baked good, glorious sunrays and boding hues. Bold symbolism, sullen whimpers and packets of pseudo-characterism. There's a lot that goes into film before it can be experienced by its audience. In all sterness, movies are top tier manipulation machines since their dawn, and we're mere topiary to filmmakers. How we perform and experience our personal lives now has a lot to do with the stories we've seen on-screen. We're also introduced to varying and alternate realities, and we're thus more open to the idea of the paranormal. This helps us imagine many events where we may be confronted with the likes of alien invasions, technological paranoia and human catastrophe.
I've found movies helping me cope through my mental health battles more than I could've ever hoped for. Especially movies which address what I am going through (depression). I've found myself relating to the characters and finding solace in them more than I had ever felt before. We all know that movies are a good escape but, boy, I didn't imagine them providing some form of healing, acceptance and/or comfort for me. This is why I've compiled the lists below; I'm hoping that they reach and help one other person out there through the battle with their mental health.
