Much of the appeal of film is the ability to tell stories that reflect real life contemporary issues. Forrest Gump is considered an amalgam of 1970s-80s issues. Inception is a commentary on corporate brain washing present in society.  Historical events inspire the fictional characters to act as a result of thes...
