What art or entertainment opened your eyes or your mind? Made you see things differently and really changed the way you look at or maybe even live your life?
Keep in mind that it is insulting to any person of intelligence if you mention the Left Behind book series. You can mention it if you like, of course, but it will be insulting to some people. Also keep in mind that I am not being serious. Believe what you must.
Hocus Pocus by Kurt Vonnegut is my answer to my own question. The book is enlightening and realistic at the same time. It is actually enlightening because it is realistic. Stopped me from being overly optimistic about things and I feel better because of it. Thank you Kurt.
Pulp Fiction is another answer. It ended a depression that lasted 2 months. It seemed that my life could not get any duller. Life, it seemed, was to continue to move in mind dulling repetition. Pulp Fiction proved to me that there was a way out of this repetition.
That is enough. What do you guys have?
