Have Documentaries or Narrative Films had a bigger impact on you?

As a film student who is also concerned with leaving the world a better place, I constantly find myself asking: What is the best way to tell a story? My question to you is, "Have documentaries or narrative films had a greater impact on your life?" Share your stories. What films have moved you and what have they moved you to do?

    Jun 15 2012: Documentary films are brilliant for those who do not have the patience for books, they inspired me to become a rainforest biologist and probably taught me half of what I know.

    A particularly inspiring story is "the coconut revolution', Its free on youtube. Also the film 'home' has some amazing imagery and is also free on youtube.
