Creativity is one of the most important things a human being can express. It’s good for our brains, our hearts, and our souls. It allows people to explore themselves and others in a deep way, something introspection and discussion can’t always do. When consuming others’ creative works, you’re getting a piece of who they are as a person, whether they wanted or intended that or not.
Creativity allows us to function as a society. We’re not merely surviving—we’re living, hour to hour and day to day. How we spend our time digesting others’ creative works—whether that’s a movie, a novel, or a collection of poems—is important to how we grow as people and a community of human beings. I hope reading about the creative content I enjoy (or don’t) gets your creative juices flowing and inspires you to make something great and uniquely your own. At the very least maybe you’ll discover something new you might be interested in.
The One I Love
The One I Love is about a troubled couple who goes on a weekend getaway to fall in love. When they arrive, they find an exact copy of themselves living in the guest house. The movie has a bit of mystery, thrills, paranormal, and comedy as the original couple try to figure out what’s going on and how to escape. I’d recommend watching this movie with friends if you want something to ponder for hours.
Unravel is a charming puzzle game about a living ball of yarn who wants to recover pieces of a scrapbook from the home where he was, shall we say, born. As he travels the world and beautiful environments, he relives the memories of a family that experiences love and loss. Coupled with the amazing music, it’s all very touching. Plus, the gameplay is pretty fun on its own.
