Yes and no.

I know there is common sense and studies that show the connections between environment, education, example and exposure and behavior. But I also know that not everyone responds to everything the same way.

I think movies can be a way to indulge, work out, process, question, escape, etc. When my parents were going through their divorce, “The Lord of the Rings” books became my anesthetic and counselor. I was saved in many ways from greater self destruction from being able to escape to an alternate reality while my current one was falling apart.

I try to teach people to be discerning, level headed thinkers about whatever they consume be it food, news, entertainment or social relationships. There's a lot of junk out there and there is beautiful artistic and entertaining work.
