I really hate the general Hollywood and millennial attitude of “following your dreams”. It’s not that it’s necessarily bad, it’s the painting of office workers or businessmen as folks living an inferior life to wild and passionate “Artists” or something. Anybody trying to work hard in order to live a good life and raise a family isn’t a loser, it’s somebody who realizes there are more important things than always doing what you want to do. Working a stable job doesn’t necessarily have to mean anything except that you don’t want to be living on the street when you start your garage band.
By the way, this is why “The Incredibles”, which is about a man who pursues his passion but realizes that it’s not worth how much he’s hurting his family and stops, is brilliant and by far Pixar’s best movie.
