What offends me, is any film with an anti-intellectual agenda. Any film that portrays the act of thinking as something horrid and to be ashamed of. Forrest Gump is a good, literal example but most action blockbusters fall for it too. See, JJ Abrams Star Trek.
I tried stopping thinking once for a long time. All the bad things stayed and good things left. Can't say how the opposite works. Would it really, almost ever, burn the mind? Bureaucracies seem to be how they are because of a collective lack of thinking. Too often not good to people.
As a short-term, like days, solution it has helped, when the environment was a harmless one, but the mind was under too much concern.
