    Default Favourite Films about politics

    With the discussions about "SICKO" and "Elizabeth-the Golden Age"
    going on, I was wondering, what are posters' favourite
    films with a political subtext?

    Dr Strangelove still stands up.
    Farenheit 911 - the Bush family's tie-in with the Saudis seems to explain more and more as time goes on.
