Hmm, I actually liked Silver Linings Playbook on a very surface level — it was just flat out a good film with an interesting story. This video here argues that it’s a good movie because of a much deeper fact that it portrays the American psyche in a way that is gut-wrenching, bold, and raw. I guess I never really made that leap in connecting the two but after watching this video which explains it, I think I have to agree.

But even without that being said, Silver Linings Playbook is good. Definitely one of my favorite films from last year.
