Batteries Not Included
Someone at work was telling me that she saw a depressing movie she can't shake. She couldn't remember the name of it to warn us off, but she said it was on Netflix and had two actors whose names I'd never heard, so I'm in much danger. But I know what she means. I have no idea why, but hearing the name of the movie "Batteries Not Included" sends me into deep depression. I don't remember the precise details of the movie (spoiler alert: I think it's about alien robots that help save a tenement from demolition). And I know the film was meant to be an uplifting story, but I must have a strange association with depression. Sometimes I think I should watch it to try to get it out of my system. Push it out with immersion therapy, but then I think that could open even darker doors, and the truth is that it's not all that difficult to avoid Batteries Not Included in my day-to-day life.
