Both films portray cases of individual depression and other psychological pathologies. In the case of distress from collectively experienced events, such as the trauma that the September 11, 2001, attacks provoked both in both the residents of New York City and the citizens of the United States as a whole, artworks such as memorials can provide such a transitional object on a mass level.
