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 26 2012: In school I read manuals and repair books on machines for my reading pages haha. I am not a fan of fiction so my entire diet has been documentaries for some time. Though I will say they can be a bit deceiving so make sure to do your own follow up on information haha. Ive been fooled before!
    None the less they are a huge part of me not completely giving up on the world around me, and inspiring me to go to college. They held my mind interested long enough to not allow me to get so sucked up into life, jobs and money. Remembering that this place I live happens once, and to treat it like so.
