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 18 2012: Documentaries have had a life-changing impact on me... it is the only kind of television/movies i watch (other than the news). It is a great source of information on specific issues but it is very important to note that they can be a bit biased, favoring the person or organization making the documentary.
    "Food Inc." has left the biggest impression on me; great watch if your into knowing more about factory farming, GMO's, and the everyday food we eat.
