The biggest critique I have is that he does not talk about having to settle for something less. In his examples, all of them were forced to the place to make themselves unhappy, yet in his experiment he let them choose.
Agreed. Content with one situation does not mean you would not prefer or obviously be happier with another.
this one i saw at school. The way I see it, it is about a woman who is changing her apperance based on what she sees in society, and thinks that's the way you should look. In the end, it kills her.
That one was good as well, and where the images on the TV screen surely reflects a "society's image" aspect, I also feel it is asking "What is the value between ones needs and ones wants?" Of course you could take that question alone and run with it.
