Fans of Wes Anderson will find this to be the best reference. 

According to Walter Hickey, data expert, entertainment has the ability to change people's biology, beliefs, and how they view themselves.

It is well known that entertainment can effect us profoundly and significantly in surprising and significant ways. We know that our most popular forms of entertainment have a direct, measurable effect on society, geopolitics, the economy, and even the future. In You Are What You Watch, Pulitzer Prize-winner Walter Hickey, former chief culture writer at FiveThirtyEight, shows how what we watch (and read and listen to) has a far greater effect on us than we realize.

Walt Hickey is a journalist. He is currently the Deputy Editor for Data and Analysis at Insider, he is the writer of the daily morning newsletter Numlock News, and serves as the president of the GALECA: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics.
