An exquisite snapshot capturing the folly of the American Dream
on January 18, 2010
Wow, here is cinematic proof that "The road to hell is paved with good intentions."
It's a a stunning yet disturbing cinematic exploration of how our determination to fulfill our dream of the ideal life for ourselves or those we love often results in tragedy. Why? That dream of the ideal life, the happy family, an attractive partner, or to be free from our monotonous employment, that dream itself becomes our addiction, our obsession, and the nature of addiction is that with each fix we give ourselves the yearning only increases, then it shifts from yearning to dispair. If you find yourself thinking your life will be ideal once you've redecorated the living-room, or have that new blender, or new car, or that dream girl you're courting - this is the movie for you!
