Discussion Movies for people dealing with social anxiety and loneliness?

19 Upvotes

I've been dealing with a lot of social anxiety and loneliness in my life, and since watching movies is about the only thing I can do in my spare time right now, I'd like to find something to watch that helps me deal with these issues. If you have any recommendations, please let me know in the comments section below. Possibly a film about someone who struggles with issues such as automatic thinking and learns to step outside of their comfort zone or whose position improves in some way, or a film that depicts social anxiety in a manner that is as realistic as possible on the big screen. So far I have watched these ones. Thank you so much in advance.

Discussion If you can't wait five years for the inevitable screen depiction of FTX collapsing, I highly urge you to revisit Margin Call (2011).

Mostly taking place over a single night before the impending implosion of an entire market, financial analysts and executives slowly work out how deep the shit is that they are in.

The Big Short gets most of the recognition as the movie about the Great Recession, and if you're only familiar with the crypto market through bits and pieces you pick up in the news, then an info dump movie like that would probably be a great watch.

But four years before came a more tightly focused movie, a greek tragedy featuring people bringing on their own demise. It's basically a chamber play in the vein of David Mamet-- it's spare and selfish with its context clues. The performances straddle line between hammy and brilliant. Jeremy Iron's monologue is on the same level as Alec Baldwin's at the start of Glengarry Glen Ross. It recalls Gordon Gekko's praise of greed and I can't describe the delivery as anything other than "juicy." Literally, Irons is savoring every word when he says, "So that we may survive."

They talk about the market, but you don't really need to know the specifics of what it is they're trading to understand the disaster, like you do with The Big Short. It could be mortgage derivatives, it could be orange futures, doesn't matter, so if you're only kind of interested in the crypto element, but want more about the drama around the collapse, this pick is for you. Just recast everyone over 30.

Recommendation Have you done a movie “challenge” and if so, what kind did you do?

11 Upvotes

I was listening to a podcast where they went through each film the actor had made and what interesting things happened around it, like how it started, where ideas came from, ect. It was an actor I really like and I realized I had missed some of their movies so I thought I might do a movie challenge a month for the new year. Like, watch all of one actors’ movies in January and then a next actor for the next month. I have trouble picking what to watch and I feel like a plan would help. Have you ever done a challenge like this? Watched like the “100 best movies of all time” or “Top 20 Westerns”, and if so, what was your favorite?
