Greatest Films 10 Movies That Could Change Your Understanding Of Life Every movie has the ability to affect its viewer differently. Some films evoke wonder and excitement, while others provoke fear or sorrow, but a commonality among all films is a prevailing message or theme. Some films can summon such profound questions, that it changes the way you perceive life as you once knew it.
