" Soon millions of people will see and they will like me" - Sara Goldfarb
"Its a reason to get up in the morning, its a reason to lose weight, to fit in the red dress. Its a reason to smile. It makes tomorrow okay"- Sara goldfarb
"Dreams and lots of hopes but the harshness of their realities set in and slowly destroy them"- Darren Aronofsky
Now here is my modern example, the most depressing movie ever made "Requiem for a dream". In this movie an elderly lady is called and asked if she would like to be on tv, she agrees and decides to try to wear her red dress from when she was younger. She can't so she starts to take dangerous diet pills. She really wants to be on tv. After a while she started to get addicted to them and started taking four times the amount of pills she was supposed to take. She slowly starts going insane and overdoses. In the video clip, Sara Goldfarb says that being on tv gives her a reason to get up in the morning. A reason to smile. This ties back to what I said. Dreams are what gives a reason to live, they assure us that we aren't wasting our lives. This woman finds a reason to live with the small hope of being on tv. The dream dream ultimately brought her down.
Some dreams are too high to reach. This was certainly the case. Another theme that fit all of these examples is that don't let dreams drag you down which is similar to the current theme. Sara is drag down completly brought her down. Some dreams are just out of your reach. The director Darren Aronofsky has said that one of the main themes of this film is that anything can become a drug, even hopes and dreams which is very true.
So what?? So what?
Dreams are good, not all dreams are bad. In fact dreams are great. Like I said, dreams give you a reason to live assure you that you're not just waisting your life. But there are some dreams that are just too big. So if you find yourself not accomplishing your dreams, maybe it's too big and don't let it drag you down. It's for your own good.
