    I REALLY liked this one!!

    I am pretty interested about things like “playing a role”, (self-) identification.

    –> The way people think about themselfs, the situation their in and what people subconsciously expect is going to happen!

    –> Since I’ve often heard, that their are many things in our brain happening, that we are not aware of;
    even
    though we can experience a wide range of emotions and make conclusions
    on them, it is interesting to understand what they are based upon!

    Also stories, myths and symbols have alway been a driving force in mankinds history;

    - they fascinate and affect people, cause they relate to their (basic-) emotions.

    and I really liked the comparison to real life-killer, the humans dark urges.
    [Things about Motivation, Psychologie, Philosophie, what drives a person and how they think]


    In the last years I’ve never been able to enjoy a movie like this
    (–> I developped a strong tendency to fall asleep during a movie :) )

    –> But the analysis of the psychological background is filled with more facts and thus something else!

    Once again:

    I REALLY liked this one!
