Like many who were raised on movies, and illegal HBO antennas, I believe that the effects of movies are more substantial than just entertainment (not that entertainment is not worthy enough on its own) and a two hour distraction from reality.  Movies have become the mythologies that have shaped my perspective of the world, sometimes even more than parents or school.  "Star Wars," as a six year old, has done as much for my imagination as math has done in molding my ability to reason.  The thing I had in common with children all over the country was my belief that Superman was the purveyer of truth, justice, and the American way.
