According to many reports, the visually stunning blockbuster seems to leave audiences feeling down in the dumps, sometimes downright suicidal.
Dale Emme, of the Yellow Ribbon Suicide Prevention Program, investigated this phenomenon by taking a team to see Avatar and admits that people have a reason to feel sad after watching the flick.
He says, One individual felt that what they do in the movie is what Americans did to the Indians. That upset them.
Emme thinks there are many reasons why the movie is such a downer.
For instance, the beautiful world of Pandora makes people feel sad that planet Earth is in such a dismal state.
Though he doesnt think avoiding the cinema is necessary, he does think people should take anti-depressants or seek counseling before and after the movie to ensure they dont go over the edge.
