* ThePowerOfApathy: The Crapsack World the film takes place in has a number of rules that make it banal and devoid of any satisfaction, one being that anyone can cause a miracle to happen, but only if they don't care whether it does.

A quietly charming indie film based on Israeli writer Etgar Keretís novella ''Knellerís Happy Campers'', ''[[http://www.hulu.com/watch/167845/wristcutters-a-love-story Wristcutters: A Love Story]]'' follows recent suicide Zia and his journey through a limbo set aside for those who kill themselves. This world is only slightly different from life, [[CrapsackWorld except the color is muted, there are no flowers or stars, and no one can smile]]. After spending some time in this world, Zia meets Eugene, a Russian rock star, and Mikal, who claims she didn't kill herself and is trying to get back to the living world. The three of them set off into this depressing dimension in order to find Zia's ex-girlfriend, who has also killed herself, and the People In Charge, who have the power to send Mikal back.

* CrapsackWorld: Crosses over with MundaneAfterlife and SceneryGorn, as the cinematography shows how drab and [[IncrediblyLamePun lifeless]] this limbo is.

* IronicHell: So, you killed yourself to escape failure, loss, rejection, crushing ennui, or other general horribleness of real life... and you end up in another life that's largely the same ''only a tiny bit worse''. It doesn't get more cruelly appropriate than that for someone out to escape a life already sapped of reason to live.
