Do you act differently when you’re depressed? Are you slow to make decisions or take action? Do you hesitate and hunker down, waiting for a better time to take a chance on something new? What if the majority of people in the country shared these feelings? If we are all depressed, we don’t buy as much, take as many trips or invest aggressively. We lose our confidence in the future, especially in the predictability of tomorrow being “normal”.

The 1930s, 1970s and the 2000s were tough times for everyone. This book creates a profile of movies we like when we’re positive or negative about the future. In times of depression (both emotionally and economically), we like different movies than in times of prosperity. It depends on the movie genre, story and quality. Each factor contributes to our “movie mood” and a measure of our collective state of mind.

Join me in reviewing 30 years of depression and the movies we loved during these dismal times; movies like King Kong, The Dark Knight, The French Connection, Young Frankenstein, The Hangover and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Each confirmed a change in movie mood.

If you understand the emotional signals from the box office, you can take action in your own life with greater confidence, either to follow the crowd or move against it to seize new opportunities in your life, both financially and personally.
