Make People Cry
How do movies, books, television shows, and other forms of art make people cry? What is it about the stories, or images, or the music that resonates with others? This blog attempts to figure out exactly why certain stories in movies, books, television shows, and other creative works, are capable of moving people to tears. Man tears, tears of joy, tears of sadness, I talk about all of those tears. And hopefully, by looking at how specific elements of popular movie scenes, book passages, internet clips, songs, and other media combine to create tear-jerking moments, I can help others think about how they can apply these techniques in their own work. Readers also comment on how any particular work made them emotional, and hopefully, through discussion, the community can get a wider view for how a work affects other people. I also hope to touch on the science and psychology of emotion in works of art.
