Documentary
Stressed out? Depressed? Heal thyself! The docudrama People v. the State of Illusion, which hopes to prescribe an ultimate answer to happiness, begins as a “court case” involving a father convicted of DUI and manslaughter. From there, scientists lay out the case for how he got there in the first place: Prison walls are a metaphor for being trapped behind our own perceptions of the world and our place in it. We see the mending of one’s mind through the prisoner’s rehabilitation as he puts into action the methods described by scientists (and one chiropractor who was also featured in that ultimate twaddle What the Bleep Do We Know?, with which this film compares itself). People v. the State of Illusion is at its core a self-help book with a truly awful music score and a repetitive, simplistic message.
