Wristcutters: A Love StoryI'm a bit of a 'hopeless romantic', but most love stories make me want to vomit. They tend to be predictable and corny, in my opinion.
That being said, 'Wristcutters: A Love Story' is in my top 5 and I am hesitant not to call it my favourite movie.
Wristcutters is a love story which takes place in purgatory. Most characters in the movie have committed suicide in life. They are now cursed to live this pseudo-life with everyone else who has "off'd" themselves. No one is able to smile - even if they wanted to!
Most of the movie is devoid of emotion and is rather slow (what do you expect when it is set in purgatory) but it is filled with dark, twisted humour - to which I can totally relate. Wristcutters is one strange movie but the ending is worth every minute. Every time I watch it I am filled with renewed hope. I once watched it 3 times in a row!
I recommend this movie to anyone who has ever thought - or is currently thinking - of suicide; just make sure you watch to the end!
I am going to put it on right now :)
