Thursday Movie Picks - Gaslighting
This week's theme from Wandering Through The Shelves really loves you. It loves you so much, no one else will. You can't love another theme. Remember? You said you'd only love this one....that's right, we're gaslighting this week. Bring on the Lifetime movies.
1) The Invisible Man - Gaslighting so harsh it ends up being a literal man in an invisible suit. This is a great thriller and honestly I think of the initial escape sequence in this film a lot. It's so effective.
2) Changeling - I will almost always give a Clint Eastwood joint a hard pass, except for this one. I love this movie. It has a frustrating case of gaslighting against its main character but I was engrossed the entire time.
3) Girl on the Train - I'm still bitter that this film didn't live up to the book's high expectation, but hot mess Rachel's boozy nature leaves her vulnerable to a LOT of gaslighting.
