Today movies are a mass entertainment vehicle likely to be used as a class entertainment one. How to use movies so that the "didactical" nature of the relationship between student and teacher is not changed into a "commercial" relationship, where the student is the client and must be entertained, is a real question. To use movies in the classroom risks a kind of pop-culture education, but not to use them is to give up a potentially innovative method of teaching and resort only to what can be gained from words, books, and the like.
