It’s easy for many of us, when we’re feeling down, to search for some big cinematic reason why. We might blame the day’s commute, an annoying co-worker, or even cast doubt on a new and exciting relationship.

Against the methods and conclusions of the social psychologists who claim there’s an epidemic, there have been leveled considerable critiques from within and outside their field.
