I'd recommend this political documentary: "Crossing the Line"

A true story of an U.S. Army defector who abandoned his country nearly 50 yrs ago and became a citizen of NoKor. His defection was denied for decades by both sides...

Sure you 'd say he's a leftist commie, a traitor of the U.S. and of the West...but here'a man who found his own happiness and his version of "liberty and freedom"...albeit in communist North Korea.

Just watched it on Roku...mind blowing.

JFK by Oliver Stone. Blew my 20 yr old mind in 92. Seen it

four times at the theater then. I am sure someone posted, but I didn't really wanna read the ton of comments here to find out. : )

Just a suggestion (for the long Memorial Weekend).

The Black Stallion.

There is nothing very intellectual here. It just happens to be one of my all time faves from my childhood. A boy is shipwrecked on a deserted island with an Arabian horse with which he forms a very special bond. After the two are rescued the boy pursues to enter himself and the horse in a professional race. It is kind of like that movie...with Tom Hanks and the volleyball...uh, you know the one. It is like that only with a better ending. If that isn't enough, maybe the fact that it features Mickey Rooney will seal the deal.

EDIT: Castaway! Thanks to my wife.

The Postman

Postman was a great movie.

Postman was a great movie. Worth watching for sure.

Actually that was a great movie

With a very good example of forming communication between tribes during a situation of chaos.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Incident at Oglala

The plight of Native American Leonard Peltier and the Government corruption at "Wounded Knee"...It is super informative about AIM (American Indian Movement) that held off the federal government for months in South Dakota in the 70s...Using their 2nd amendmant rights!!!

Bad food, worse weather, please rEVOLution the states so I can bring my family back home!

The Oiling of America

I suggest The Oiling of America; A Presentation of the Lipid Hypothesis of Heart Disease - America's #1 Killer. Details on how Industry and the FDA coordinate(d) and conspire(d) to feed industrial waste to consumers and perpetuate a false thesis for the cause of heart disease - a thesis that promotes pharmaceutical sales.

(I am a healthcare professional and find the information presented here well-organized and compelling)

Dr. Strangelove

A classic. Now that I thought of it I think I will watch it again myself!

Jim Rogers

It's been posted before, but the most imporant

series of our time, IMO, is the interview with John Taylor Gatto by Hope and Tragedy, titled the Ultimate History Lesson: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YQiW_l848t8

Yes!

So funny you asked... I was thinking of starting a post on this myself. Last night, my family re-watched the wonderful movie "Amazing Grace" - which is the story of William Wilberforce. The last time I watched it, probably three years ago, I was still in major neocon mode. I did not see (or understand) the underlying themes of the movie the way I do now. Watching it last night, I was struck by the similarities between the fight Wilberforce and his little rag-tag army of abolitionists faced, and those of us in the liberty movement now face. They were up against "the establishment" of their time, we're up against ours; they were far outnumbered in the beginning, so were we; they did radical things - even to the point of risking life and limb for a cause they so passionately believed in, so are we; they knew that compromise was unacceptable because nothing would change, so do we... Honestly I could go on and on! It's an awesome movie and extremely inspiring, giving you a renewed sense of purpose. I highly recommend it. Perhaps best of all, if you have children it's one you can all enjoy together.

Microcosmos

A beautiful film that bridges the gap between documentary and art film. It's been called the Jurassic Park of insect films. Personally, I find the movie indescribable. It will blow your mind. There are only a few sentences of dialogue. Warning: Children will dig this film more than adults---because you are probably jaded. Prepare to be mesmerized... Watch it on Netflix or...

You really should rent this or purchase it so you can watch it in high quality.

WOW!

Just the first five minutes blew my mind! Watch later list for sure. Thanks.

Extraordinary!

Instead of all the NEGATIVE ENVIRONMENTAL PROSELYTIZING to school children from kindergarten on up - all about pollution and carbon monoxide and acid rain and fisherman killing dolphins, etc., etc. - just bring them outdoors more to spend some quiet time just observing nature firsthand and also show them something like this to help develop a love and appreciation for the natural world. As they say, you don't need to be taught to protect what you love; you do that instinctively. Thank you for this wonderful recommendation.

If you've had the awakening, you'll know how to relate to these.

The Matrix- The illusion we all -->( those that have not had the awakening ) live in thanks to controlled media.

Charlie Wilson's War- How we interfere and blow back.

Wag The Dog -- How the media really works.

The Distinguished Gentleman -- How politics really works.

The Road Warrior-- What life will be like post total economic collapse.

Demolition Man ( horrible movie ) -- What life will be like in a police state with all food being controlled by conglomerate food companies.

Borne Identity/Supremacy/Ultimatum -- How our intelligence agencies probably work and operate within themselves and covertly unbeknownst to the public.

There are many...many more, but there's a decent start.

PS.

PS.

1. Forgot to add the Star Wars series. Particularly the first three (ie.. latest three ). This easily relates to the two party political paradigm we live under and how both parties are really under the control of the puppet masters ( in the movies case, the emperor ).

2. They Live - Kinda like the matrix reference. Wish I could hand out glasses that showed the evil empire, NWO etc...
