La Intellectuelle: Manic Pixie Dream Girl | FEM Newsmagazine
As a self-professed hopeless romantic, I must admit that I am a "chick flick" junkie who thrives on romantic comedies. Not surprisingly, I [...]
Zooey Deschanel is a lovely lady. Her character in "Elf" was a perfect monotone foil titular goofball Will Ferrell. My brother informed me that due to recent divorce Deschanel Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard, he is going to develop a plan that ends with She and Him singer become my sister-in-law. And that would probably be really fun, because we can work together to make a cake that is really a giant owl-shaped cookies topped with glitter and sprinkles, and then sings about how quaint we are. My point is: I like ZoDesch.
She is adorable. However, Zooey, also only play one character, and a character that is the essence of the movie archetype - Manic Pixie Dream Girl.
The term was coined by film critic Nathan Rabin in response agent vinod songs Kristen name character Dunst lackluster Cameron Crowe film "Elizabethtown." If you've never seen this movie (which is understandable, because agent vinod songs it was not very good), then I think Natalie Portman in "Garden State," Scarlett Johansson in "Lost in Translation", Zooey Deschanel in "(500) Days Summer "and" new girl ", or, if you want your film to cross-dressers and / or Mickey Rooney agent vinod songs turning incredibly offensive portrayal of Chinese, Marilyn agent vinod songs in" Some Like It Hot "and Audrey in" Breakfast at Tiffany's. "
The point is, this archetype has been around for some time, and it's not leaving. In essence, agent vinod songs the Manic Pixie Dream Girl is a cute, quirky, and a tad crazy. She wants genuine fashion and music, and its sole purpose in this story is to be) subject to the immortal
man-boy - and quite superficial (read: knowing that a girl's favorite band is the Smiths is not the same as knowing that girl) - Love , and b) make the man-boy grow up and find yourself in this crazy, crazy world. MPDGs have no souls. They are not real people. And this is why this particular archetype is a dangerous thing. Just because a female character is not "Hollywood
sexy" - if it is pasty brunette instead of tan and blonde, if she collects wooden ducks instead of silicone
implants, if it teaches valuable lessons about how the world is a wonderful place with sewing smiley faces in her needlework - that does not mean she is smart. That does not mean that it is true. That does not mean that she is not a stereotype.
This is all the film version of Women hipster variant what Jaclyn Friedman called "bad ass girl," a woman a man wants to date so he can show off to their friends how cool it is because of how cool it is the lady he was able to bed. It's taking a woman who may not look like a stereotypical trophy, but making the trophy anyway. Women hipster is that girl in the jacket hiding behind glasses and brunette bob at the corner coffee shop while her boyfriend and his friends talking about philosophy and Best Coast. Women hipster sitting quietly and giggling from time to time. Women hipster should not be anything more than a hipster girl. There is no possible way that this woman does not have opinions and feelings out well placed giggling and iTunes playlist Morissey songs.
But a man who went to see "Garden State" in 8th grade and has since devoted his life to finding epileptic girl who will make all his troubles go away no need for it to be nothing more than his IRL MPDG.
