MestnyiGeroi's "100+ Politically Bold Movies"
A subjective selection of films that I have seen (and can recall) that are politically bold in nature. Boldness here is not defined simply by the power of the statement made, but by an element of risk in making the film— that risk being at the least some degree of potential flak or backlash, and at the most the loss of career or even life.
I am sure I’ve missed dozens of deserving choices, so any recommendations are welcome. And again, obviously this list is subjective and arbitrary; a complete list of all politically courageous films would number in the thousands, surely.
And finally, while it can well be argued that all things are political, I have limited my selections to films that entail politics in the most conventional sense, rather than, say, a movie that is shocking in its treatment of religion or gender, etc.
The movies are listed in chronological order.
