Do You Watch Movies to Think/Feel Something or to Escape?

The Hollywood Reporter recently wrote about an indie drama in the works titled Anytown which focuses on "a racist high school attack and its aftermath." The description of the movie is intriguing, though it also looks like it'll be one of those super difficult-to-watch kinds of movies (see: Boys Don't Cry, etc.). I'll probably still see it if it looks like it's made well, but I know plenty of people who won't see difficult movies — no matter how well-made — because they only like movies that make them feel good.

Which camp do you fall into? Do you seek out movies that will make you feel good and happily escape your daily life? Or are you more into the meaty make-you-think stuff?
