“I cried a little bit. I honestly cried.”
-Random Greenpeace worker with an abundance of facial piercings,
describing her Avatar-induced depression. Don’t worry! She’s not alone:
A user named Mike wrote on the fan Web site “Naviblue” that he contemplated suicide after seeing the movie.
“Ever since I went to see ‘Avatar’ I have been depressed. Watching the wonderful world of Pandora and all the Na’vi made me want to be one of them. I can’t stop thinking about all the things that happened in the film and all of the tears and shivers I got from it,” Mike posted. “I even contemplate suicide thinking that if I do it I will be rebirthed in a world similar to Pandora and the everything is the same as in ‘Avatar.’ ”
Other fans have expressed feelings of disgust with the human race and disengagement with reality.
