I finally realised it today, I finally saw movies for what they are… The opportunity to rub our noses in the fantasy we want consciously or sub consciously for our selves.
Take the Inbetweeners Movie for example… Heres the plot.
SPOILER ALERT>>> STOP READING NOW IF YOUR ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO HATE KNOWING WHAT HAPPENS BEFORE IT DOES>>>>
Four Friends Each with a different insecurity.. aged around 19 to 21 go away on holiday to drink and have sex. Each have relatively no experience with women. By the middle of the movie even if you havent seen the tv series that came before this you’re praying for something to go their way. By the end of the movie.. if your anything like me you’re going to be wishing you was one of the four male leads.
The film uses four guys to talk to all of our own insecurities, blows them out of proportion and make me feel worse.
Great… It’s all good… But now the movies finished I find myself sitting here wondering why I’m single….
And I was doing so well burying my neurosis under keeping busy by working.
Still Its a great film…
