sure good movies can aspire people to do things they never would do before, it can also help you to see things from a different perspective, and to learn different things as well.

Good question! I believe whatever power we are willing to give to a movie can be used as an excuse for us not taking responsibility for our actions(whether positive or negative actions).Movies are meant to entertain us while making money for the companies.Are we so weak as to allow a movie form our actions?If a movie makes us think and seek more information,then that is a plus!.But we have to keep things in perspective.

yes. Of course they do. Movies, like any other form of art, are making us identify with the situation, and is able to play with us, like the director of the movie wanted. Especially if that is a good movie. Because of that the best ways to make propaganda are usually through the movie making media. It is a brilliant field and also a dangerous one.
