Old movies with Robert Redford; The way we were, with Barbara Streisand and my favorite, leaning on some form of conspiracy, The three days of the condor. A really thrilling movie. With Faye Dunaway and Max Von Sydow.

Also, with Rutger Hauer, the old movie The Hitchhiker... A very intense movie.


Let me think some more and I'll be back with a few more suggestions.

This is so easy of a call for me...

Watchmen

weak outline of the plot:



The 'Minutemen', a collection of costumed crime fighters, form in 1938 in response to a rise in costumed gangs and criminals, and the 'Watchmen' similarly form decades later. Their existence in America has dramatically affected world events: the super powers of Dr. Manhattan (Billy Crudup) help the United States win the Vietnam War, resulting in President Richard Nixon (Robert Wisden) being repeatedly reelected into the 1980s

en.wikipedia.org...

Why do I enjoy this movie so darn much...

It is about everything that is currently transpiring, and more!

It's a blend of Science, God, Politics, War, Love, Peace and the Future...
I'm not going to get all conspiratorial about it, but lets just say that Alex Jones did a lengthy covering of the story, and tried to claim it was some Illuminati in Hollywood business.

As well, the author of the original comic, also first wrote.... DR.OCCULT, omg what a great comic. The depth in which this movie covers, is so freaking genius, I can't even put it into words.

Next....

Southland Tales:
en.wikipedia.org...

SIMPLY THE MOST UNDERRATED MOVIE OF ALL TIME, just look at the cast for heavens sake! A MUST WATCH!

I tend to put things in groups of threes, so with out further ado.

Thor
This movie is straight up about America... I don't even know how to put this in words, although I have outlined this before. It's got the false flag, Osama parallel... ahh man, just epic. lol

anyways... those are my favorites.

Lets not forget.. Pans Labyrinth, Rise of Hannibal, ummm... oh yeah, kinda hard to remember the last one lol, Half Baked!

Ooops 1 more, just because it's arguably one of the greatest of all time, and even critics will agree. If you have not seen it.... GET OFF YOUR LAZY $%$ AND GO GET IT.... City Of God
en.wikipedia.org...

I could watch that movie 100 times in a row and never get sick of it, well that and Blow!

GIA (played by Angelina Jolie) True story about a super model. Probably one of the first known woman affected by the AIDS virus. Very touching movie. But, I have lots more favorites. Would depend on the genre.

Well, gotta be obvious: Empire Strikes Back. So deep, people still don't get the whole Luke facing himself as Vader scene.

(Not that anyone asked), but here's why. See, Yoda told Luke he wouldn't need his weapons. But Luke brought them anyways. He also ignited his saber first. A Jedi never attacks, the force is for defense, only. So when Luke showed he was willing to be aggressive, he showed his fate, the same as his father's.

Deep movie, lost in lasers and sabers.

For some reason, it made me think of Starship Troopers. I never tire of sseing that one!

And you're right about the Empire Strikes back. I wish episodes 1 to 3 were of the same quality.

Cube zero

and Cube from 1969 (black&white short film). short and very deeply philosophical screenplay aimed at explaining existence. it's a rare one so u might have to do some searching. i have a copy of it.

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas!!!!! All time favorite...I am a huge Hunter S. Thompson fan though.

To quote Dr. Gonzo: "I hate to say this, but this place is getting to me. I think I'm getting the Fear."

If it's truth exposing movies we wish to discus, I'm going with Wag the Dog. I'm sure many have seen it, but for those that haven't, it's about the CIA sets up a fake war. It's similarities to what happened in Afghanistan, and down to the deaths of those seals involved in taking out Bin Laden. is creepy.

From wiki:

"When an unnamed president of the United States is caught in a closed room making advances on an underage "Firefly Girl" (the fictional equivalent of a Girl Scout) less than two weeks before re-election, Conrad Brean (DeNiro), a top notch spin-doctor, is brought in to try to take the public attention away from the scandal. He decides to construct a fake war with Albania, hoping the media will concentrate on this instead. In order to come up with his 'war', he contacts a Hollywood producer named Stanley Motss (Hoffman), who brings in a series of specialists who help construct a theme song, build up interest, and fake some footage of an orphan in Albania.

The plan's continual setbacks – including an error that led to seizing a criminally insane Army prison convict (Harrelson) to be their "hero" who was "shot down behind enemy lines" – do not disturb the producer, who repeatedly claims "This is nothing" while comparing the situation to a past movie-making catastrophes he averted. In the end, with the election done and the president re-elected, everything seems fine – until the producer finds out from the news outlets that the media are crediting the president's win to his tired "Don't change horses in mid stream" campaign slogan, rather than Motss's elaborate plans. Motss announces that he will call the media to "set them straight," despite Brean's warning him that he is "toying with his life." When Motss refuses to back down, Brean has him killed and makes it look as if he had a heart-attack while tanning next to his pool. The film ends with a news report about a violent incident in Albania, but it is unclear whether this is a true event or simply a continuation of the fictional war."

So the wikiguy knows, yes, it was a continuation of fictional war. DeNiro states often how useful an enemy that isn't a nation, "terrorists" will be to him and the plans of the CIA. With the cold war over, the nation needed a new boogy man.

In reality, this was Osama. Now with him "dead", the shadow of Al Queda still looms. I just wonder how much longer until the new boogy man shows up.

If all the signs about the olympics in London are right (and they very well could be. Even if not though, that's alot of illuminati symbolism in 2012 games) I would guess that is where he'll make his debute so to speak. After all, what kind of monster attacks the olympic games? Well, that's what they'll want you to think, and most will think just that as they call for the head of another puppet of the CIA.
