question 4: The two films, Force Majeure and Mystic River can be categorized as a comedy and a tragedy respectively. Try to cover these 3 questions in your Discussion post:
1. Force Majeure, as comedy, deconstructs patriarchy. As you watch, pay attention to moments in which you perceive that certain beliefs, certain emotional expectations are subverted– both for some of the characters and for the viewer. When the rug is pulled away from under our feet, when a particular order, a belief system is tripped up, what happens then? Write about some these moments of subversion in the film.
2. Mystic River is a drama that centers on trauma. How does a trauma chain people in place, to stereotypes?
3. And finally: is there any way of relating the two movies? Any overlaps in the concerns and questions they raise?
