This is actually a fascinating story IMHO, and pretty telling (if actually true) of what many see that our world has become, and what many wish were different.
Personally, I found this film to be one of the most incredible, epic things I have ever seen.
But people becoming suicidal after viewing it? I wonder how much of this story is accurate, and how much of it is being 'spun' due to the popularity that this alien-themed film, which portrays a race of beings in a positive manner, and US in a negative one?
I certainly would not mind living in such a world with such beings, and I get the sense that this film is resonating on some sort of level with our civilization like that, as it may go on to be the highest grossing epic of all time. It is impacting people quite strongly and on a massive scale.
To me, this signals that the world at large, the people, (not the few up in positions of power dictating to the rest of us) WANT such a way of living, like our ancestors once lived---In peace and harmony with each other and their planet.
I wonder if a news story such as this is sort of done as a 'smear piece' of sorts to keep the positivity (and possibility)that people are taking away from this monumental event?

I know what some in the article are feeling. After I watched the movie the first time I stepped out of the theatre onto a cold-grey-dirty parking lot and my first thought was "This place sucks". Earth has many wonderous places but its very easy to see the havoc Humans are wrecking in their unchecked advancement across the Earth.
