There is something inherently affected about biopics : Somehow, art should not be about attempting to imitate life as closely as possible. Art implies making a statement of some kind, adding or removing something from reality as we percieve it.
Otherwise, I just don't see the point.
Admittedly, you can consider biopics less as art than as history lessons - As such; sure, why not?
I still have an issue with the
inevitable subjectivity, which I think affects you stronger in picture
than in text, as we have an innate tendency to believe what we see,
even in the 21st century.
