Art is born from the reality and more exaggeratory than it. Movie is a form to express the artist`s ideas about the reality. However, there is also an argument among peoples about whether movie should be regard as a kind of art cause a great many of special skills are used in the movies. From where i was standing, i will not take movie as reality, but i will think about the reality by use of watching movies for i can get more understandings of people and life.

Movies are a person's view of a topic. The view of the writer, the view of the director and even the view of the actor. Even movies that are based on real life facts are just that, it is impossible to show reality in all it's glory as at times there are things that happen that are so amazing that no one would believe it, if it were used in a movie. The problem with movies is not if they are real or if they are a valid reflection of reality, movies are supposed to be an escape from reality. The problem is that people are unable to separate fact from fiction, considering that movies have been around for so many years it is scary how many people take movies on face value. Movies are visual novels. There is stories of romance, drama and action but it is a safe way of experiencing the adventure. It is just that, stories, and if you walk out having learnt something all the better, but to mistake it for reality that is just wrong.

It depends on the kind of movies you are watching. Because there are really true-to-life which depicts the reality. There are also documentary which tackles about the real happening in life.
