Not really. Have to agree with Mossym's post above about Saving Private Ryan's opening, but for me standing on the beaches at Dieppe or atop Vimy Ridge, as a Canadian, was far more affecting than seeing anything on the screen. Walking through the graves of kids far younger than I, who had been asked to do something that I never was, has moved me far more than anything I've seen on film.
Film is terribly powerful and has changed attitudes and wrongs, see the effect of Days of Glory on France or the impact of An Inconvient Truth. Personally, film can move me, but my opinion is based on my personal experience and not on a film maker's whim.
