From a conversation about movie history - from pandemics (1918 not so well covered) to wars and rebuilding into the future (sci-fi) to general escapism, and to drama and portrayals of the human condition. And I recalled this. An easy read for film history lovers, and also relevant to media, psychology, and sociology. Here is the wonderfully brilliant, funny, and illuminating Dr. Danny Wedding, in this presentation focusing on the portrayal - positive and negative, educational or stereotypical - of mental health (or lack thereof) in film.

Tales from the Loop review: small-town America goes sci-fi | The Verge

Tales from the Loop is so pretty it breaks your heart. Based on the work of Swedish artist Simon Stålenhag, famous for his scenes of pastoral tranquility draped around uncanny sci-fi sights, Amazon’s newest drama is a collection of eight short stories where everyday rural life is tinged with the supernatural. But unlike, say, Stranger Things, where the otherworldly takes center stage, Tales from the Loop uses it as an excuse to dig deeper into the people who must continue to live mundane lives, even as the extraordinary looms just inches away.
I don't go for science fiction these days but I'm sold on this series. If you've got Apple TV+, do check it out even if you're not a sci-fi fan.
