The first movie that really made Jarvis pay attention to the the art of film was The Usual Suspects. Once he reached the credits of the movie, the rewind button was pressed and it was viewed two more times consecutively. Aspects and values were analyzed; such as the script, camera angles, and cuts. He realized that these are the things that made a good story great. The show The Wire did much of the same for him that The Usual Suspects did.  Those two entries of visual storytelling inspired a love and passion for the art. Films such as Silence of the Lambs, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Inception, and more added to the passion. Even lighter fare such as RocknRolla (the boom of the comic book movie industry) and Office Space help show the escape possible with film. Now we're in the age where the tv drama is the top value of the small screen. Quality shows like Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Power, Sons of Anarchy, Dexter, and more push what we've known to come from the television drama. It can be a great and sometimes frustrating time to be a fan.
