If you love shoot-’em-up movies that are secretly about depression and religion, then you’ve probably already seen the 2008 blockbuster Wanted. The movie reflects a lot of the stresses and stereotypes of masculinity and how a lot of men deal with them.
I talk at length about anxiety and depression and how the pressure to “be a man” can often lead us into unfulfilling lives. And how doing so can be detrimental to our mental health. I also talk about how women are portrayed in fantasy/action films such as this one, as well as religion, and finding the motivation to improve your life.
