4 Famous Movies With Deceptively Complex Symbolism

#4. The Bottle Flask in Children of Men
Clive Owen plays Theo Faron, a former activist who has become a drunken bureaucrat. Since the death of his son and subsequent divorce, he no longer cares about society. From his first introduction into the film, he carries a flask-shaped liquor bottle.
Later in the movie, Theo gets drawn into a resistance movement — that he must also flee — as he safeguards the life of perhaps the only pregnant woman on the planet. When that woman goes into labor, Theo must help deliver the child in a filthy room, and does his best to create a sanitary environment. After a quick wash, he pours out his liquor bottle to sterilize his hands. When Theo did not care about others, the flask-shaped liquor bottle represented drunk indifference, but as he begins to think of others, that same object becomes a symbol of compassion. It becomes a symbol of charity and commitment.

3 Reasons Never to Use the Term ‘Friend Zone’

#3. When You Become Her Friend Knowing You Want More
Instead of being transparent with your feelings, you come up with a plan: “Hey, I’ll become her friend first. I’ll show her what a great guy I am. I’ll be her best friend and listen to her complain about boys and her friends and whatever else, and when she sees how sweet I am and what a good listener I am, she’ll have no choice but to accept me when I finally confess what I knew from day one — I dig her sexually and want to date her.”
You have to accept, right now, that’s not a legitimate way to win someone’s heart.

#4. Vodka
Vodka no longer makes me happy like it did when I was a kid. I don’t feel like going out and shooting heroin with Bridget Fonda after she’s done with the day’s filming on the set of Jackie Brown (Oh sorry, it was the ’90s when I really enjoyed vodka. Also, like all alcohol, vodka affects your cognitive process, so I might not have actually mainlined with Bridget Fonda).
