This cannot be coincidence. I had to make a separate thread about it.
The first time I saw this film was in 2006 while studying for a major history exam in high school. It was such a thrilling and yet sobering feeling. Ever since then I try to watch it while studying, doing homework, or working on some kind of project.
Today, I saw it while while studying for a final exam on Friday.
Every time I see this film while doing work, it makes me more focused and gives me this very uniquely positive feeling. I also end up doing really well on the homework or exam.
I really don't know what it is, but this works so well, especially when you watch/work at night.
I know I'm bumping an old thread and all, but I did this with Inception and again with BB for my sociology exam and made a 98. When I was studying, I found I was able to watch the film and simultaneously understand my stuff a lot better. Maybe it's because Nolan's films make you focus on the content, which in turn makes you focus on other things.
