(Los Angeles, CA)
I would have to say that the Law of Attraction movie for me would be Fight Club with Brad Pitt. There were things about it that bugged me—spoilers—that Brad Pitt and Edward Norton turned out to be the same character, for example, but the anti-consumerism themes of the movie really made me think. It also came out at a time in my life when I was struggling with what I was going to do next and what direction I wanted to take in my life. I was unhappy with many of the obvious choices facing me and that movie made me realize I didn’t have to do the expected, usual things but could chart my own course and blaze a trail in whatever direction I wanted.
As a weird aside, the big, dilapidated old house in that movie also spoke to me, in the sense that it made me think about how I lived as well, that a regular house or apartment weren’t the only ways to live. I’ve since done a fair amount of fixing and recycling old appliances and furniture; with a little work old and broken things can be made nicer than new ones, as they were often of much higher quality originally. The house from Fight Club was an early seed of that notion in my mind.
