DFM Eternal Memento April 8

Just like memories can shape who you are, can films (movies) influence you to act, or change who you are? Can they make you remember your own personal experiences?  When we go through the act of remembering movies, can that change us?  For how long? Identify film(s) that have had an influence in your life and how they have changed you. When you remember these films, what happens inside you (do you have an emotional response)?
