Myth-weavers. Mythic spoiler. Mytheresa. There’s no denying, movies can be an awesome teacher when it comes to putting you in situations you’d never want to find yourself in real life. But sometimes they simply overdo it and those lessons start to drift away from the reality. To help you make sense of what’s true and what’s not, illustrator Lenya Brick from Brightside drew 12 situations when movies overstep the boundaries of reality. And surprisingly some of these have already become staples in movie making and can be seen in dozens of iconic movies. Take a look at just what we mean below.

The characters all felt real as opposed to actors just following scripted prompts. It just felt organic and real, and I appreciated the experience I had watching this movie for the first time. August 29, 2014 Format: DVD Verified Purchase The teenagers depicted in this film seem more realistic than those usually portrayed in teen films. It was not easy to guess the ending of several of the "relationships". This film is better than most of its kind. Recommended. March 31, 2015 Format: DVD Verified Purchase I love it!! I can see why it is considered a B movie. But I love it because my Granddaughter is the star!!!! December 9, 2012 Format: DVD Verified Purchase This film will play better to former teens than current ones. The cast is populated with inexperienced actors (some of whom are more effective than others), and the filmmakers are more interested in showing a small slice of summer than taking you on a more traditional narrative journey. Before watching, put yourself in the mindset of American Graffiti or Dazed & Confused: this is an ensemble story where nothing "big" happens, and many of the characters end up in the same place - literally and figuratively - where they started. If you want plot twists and prom scenes and epiphanies, look elsewhere. June 18, 2018 Format: Prime Video Verified Purchase Terrible film. Awful acting. Good cinematography, though. July 4, 2015 Format: Prime Video Verified Purchase I was hoping for more depth but it was a decent watch.

Myth hunters. Credit... Brian Stauffer Hollywood wants us to think that its films are for everyone, but our critics say that was never true. Still, they see a way forward. Brian Stauffer This fall and winter will bring the familiar blockbuster blowouts — a new “Thor” and “Star Wars” — and smaller movies striving for relevance along with awards. These include “Marshall, ” Reginald Hudlin’s biopic about the Supreme Court justice Thurgood Marshall; “LBJ, ” Rob Reiner’s drama about the president who appointed Justice Marshall; and “The Post, ” Steven Spielberg’s dramatization of the Pentagon Papers case, which Justice Marshall ruled on. These dramas of politics — each involving the high court’s first black justice — arrive at a singularly contentious political moment in an atmosphere of angry, sometimes violent dissensus. And while some of the season’s new movies will offer relief from real-world troubles (that’s entertainment! ), others will invariably engage the cultural and social division, suspicion and recrimination that afflict the present moment. The New York Times’s chief film critics, Manohla Dargis and A. O. Scott, reflect on the state of the movies in our state of disunion. Image Credit... Justin Lubin/Universal Pictures A. SCOTT E pluribus unum. Like a lot of 20th-century kids, I learned that phrase from “The Wizard of Oz. ” For most of their history, American movies have responded to crisis and conflict with visions of harmony. The consistent message from Hollywood — through the Great Depression and World War II, the civil rights movement and Vietnam, Roosevelt and Nixon and Reagan and Obama — has been that we are all in this together. But what if we’re not? The schisms in our society seem deeper than ever; the differences we might have put aside to go to the movies are in a state of constant inflammation. Common ground is elusive, to say the least. We’ve grown accustomed to using the phrase “culture war” to refer to conflicts about identity, beliefs and values, but also to thinking about popular culture, movies in particular, as a DMZ. Conservatives have long railed against liberal Hollywood, and liberals have bemoaned the racism, sexism and militarism of Hollywood products, but through it all red and blue states have come together to produce plenty of box-office green. Movies are a common treasury for everyone to share. Is that still true? Was it ever? MANOHLA DARGIS The ideal of one nation under a movie theater has obvious appeal, but the dream that American movies are for everybody has always been a self-serving myth of what historically has been a white, male-dominated industry. The industry still leans on that myth, including at that nostalgia-wreathed testament to self-love known as the Academy Awards. But the movies didn’t conquer the mass audience once upon a time by incidentally ignoring and demeaning swaths of humanity; it partly conquered that audience specifically because of what it ignored and who it demeaned. I’m talking about movies, but this myth didn’t originate in Hollywood. After Charlottesville, Va., after I caught my breath and calmed down, I wondered how and if American filmmakers would begin more regularly addressing hate groups. They’re certainly not new. One of narrative cinema’s foundational works is D. W. Griffith’s “ The Birth of a Nation, ” which celebrates the Ku Klux Klan and became a foundational story for the Klan itself. Since then, other movies have taken on hate groups, including “Mississippi Burning, ” “American History X” and, more recently, “Green Room, ” a movie that I found almost unbearably frighteningly realistic despite its embrace of Grand Guignol excess and gushing blood. The problem with movies like these, though, is that they’re also reassuring, just because they suggest this monstrous threat is someplace else, somewhere deep in the woods and away from “nice” white people. SCOTT When I first saw “Green Room, ” Jeremy Saulnier’s smart and nasty thriller about a rock band that falls afoul of a gang of Nazi punks in the Pacific Northwest, I thought it was maybe a bit hyperbolic. That was in 2016. Now, if anything, the movie seems understated. From the vantage point of 2017, Mr. Saulnier’s white supremacists seem to belong less to an isolated, marginal subculture than to a much larger and more powerful tendency in American society. Your invocation of “The Birth of a Nation” — a movie that counted the president of the United States, Woodrow Wilson, among its earliest fans — is a reminder that white supremacy is part of the heritage of Hollywood, which is to say of the American mainstream. Movies made in the post-civil-rights era have struggled to acknowledge this legacy, and have generally avoided reckoning with it honestly. In stories about race and racism, a basically decent but timid or ignorant white person has a change of heart, a bigot is disgraced or an exceptionally talented black person heroically proves the haters wrong. This paradigm — a model that makes racial conflict a matter of individual behavior and personal relationships — is what Kathryn Bigelow’s “Detroit” struggles to overcome and what Jordan Peele’s “Get Out” brilliantly demolishes. I don’t think there’s ever been so thorough and persuasive a shattering of liberal racism, and I say that while picking shards of self-regard out of my own pale skin. But of course that’s precisely what makes “Get Out” an artifact of the Obama era. The racism that is currently ascendant, on the streets of Charlottesville and in the government itself, isn’t exactly the liberal kind. DARGIS Seriously, white people just need to do better — we do, people at this paper do, the movie industry does. Ms. Bigelow takes on racial violence in “Detroit, ” but while she fills her images with suffering black men, she underscores personal rather than institutional white racism and largely omits black resistance, which is bizarre for a story set in 1967. Like many (most) white directors, Sofia Coppola simply elides race, which makes its absence in her Civil War drama “The Beguiled” more blatant. That said, each director has revisited an American historical trauma — one with murdered black men, the other with forgotten white women — that the mainstream rarely bothers with. So, both women deserve credit for the stories they did tell, however imperfectly. They’re artists and each is doing serious, sincere, thoughtful work, which is no small achievement, given especially that industrial cinema is dominated by corporate-think. Part of the problem in both movies is one of form, which gets to the larger issue of how directors subvert (or don’t) narrative conventions or include (or ignore) certain representations. The good intentions of white people mean little if they only recycle the same old ideas and familiar forms, whether we’re talking about another superhero flick or a little indie in which everyone learns something important. SCOTT Recycling is one thing American movies know how to do. It’s not only with respect to race that Hollywood remains trapped in old ideas and stale forms — in narrative paradigms that look increasingly dubious in the light of current events. The dominant genre of the 21st century so far has been the superhero movie, with an ethos (and often a fan base) that is fundamentally anti-democratic. The institutions of government (with the occasional and ideologically significant exception of the municipal police department) are venal and incompetent. Their civic functions are better left to rich guys, ultrapowerful mutants or off-the-books paramilitaries made up of industrialists, military officers and demigods. Meanwhile, the public is entirely disempowered, cowering in fear of evil intruders or whipped up into a frenzy by unscrupulous demagogues. The hero alone can save them. DARGIS True, except that much of what you’ve described — the individual hero, the anti-democratic spirit and the failed, at times corrupt government institutions — have given us some of the greatest American movies ever made. The loner detective, the romantic gangster, the unethical institutions and the neighbors who instantly turn into a mob: Our movies are as contradictory as the people making, watching and reviewing them. One problem is that the major studios now dominate the box office with far fewer types of stories, leaving any real narrative diversity to the independents. There may be more movies today, but most Americans have few actual choices at the multiplex. In many ways, the superhero movie puts a mystical cape on recycled bits from other popular genres, but with a hero as supersize as the rest of the country. The superhero movie is also the perfect delivery system for free-market ideas — one that trumpets competition but has led to monopolies — that Ronald Reagan exalted in his 1981 inaugural address, the one in which he said “government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem. ” Eight years later, in 1989, the year that Warner Communications merged with Time Inc., Tim Burton’s “Batman” exemplified what the former Disney boss Michael Eisner termed “synergistic brand extension”; it also suggested that salvation came from a messianic superhero, not democracy. SCOTT At around the same time what came to be known as the indie boom of the ’90s was getting underway. Independent cinema, by definition seeking out a smaller audience, has been notably (if imperfectly) pluralistic. And one of its major preoccupations has been the cultural and economic anxieties of the white, rural working class. I’m not sure this has been sufficiently recognized amid the many postelection reports on the state of that neglected and misunderstood population. Filmmakers like Debra Granik (“Winter’s Bone”), Courtney Hunt (“Frozen River”), Jeff Nichols (“Mud, ” “Loving”) and David Lowery (“A Ghost Story, ” most recently) have been exploring hard-pressed, blue-collar, red-state environments for the past decade. Of course, their work has found an audience mainly in cities and college towns, and especially at the Sundance Film Festival, where liberal elitists from the coasts gather each January. Those movies are mostly downers. That isn’t true of “Logan Lucky, ” Steven Soderbergh’s high-spirited, class-conscious, commercially minded heist movie starring Channing Tatum as the leader of a makeshift gang of West Virginians who steal a ton of cash from a Nascar race. There’s barely a whisper of overt politics on screen — not a MAGA hat or a Confederate flag in sight — and the implicit politics are populist, inclusive and (small-d) democratic. “Logan Lucky, ” released in August, should have appealed to liberals and conservatives alike. Instead, it flopped. I know I shouldn’t read too much into that fact, but that failure does seem to me indicative of the state of the old movies-for-everyone ideal. There is division and contradiction wherever you look, which poses a challenge for critics as well as filmmakers. Who are we talking to? Whose stories are we telling? What biases and blind spots find their way into the work we do? DARGIS The story that critics tell is that of the movies but also of our desires. What do we want from the movies? What do we yearn for? I want better movies, fewer franchises, more risks. I also want diversity, because of who I am as a person, what’s important to me, but also because watching the same old stories with the same old beats and the same mostly white, mostly male faces is tiresome — and bad for the art. Racial and gender homogeneity are as deadening as script formulas. We need to open up how we talk about movies, find a way to write about inclusion that isn’t prescriptive but makes room for uncomfortable conversations, including about revered white, male auteurs. It’s tough. Yet these discussions were always necessary and, given our fractious present, feel all the more urgent. Once, the movies tried to unite us by turning the multi-everything audience into something called Americans. Now, we seem to have become a nation of outsiders and the idea of E pluribus unum — “Out of many, one” — often feels strongest in, well, Marvel movies, which turn into war stories. War, of course, suggests one kind of universal value — we’re all in this together against a shared enemy — that often seems otherwise missing in these Divided States of America. But all we have to do is look at our movies to know that there are other battles to wage.
