They're telling you, "Ok, ok, we admit it, now this is what REALLY happened with JFK, so you can stop poking into that one and trying to find the truth."
Then they show you Conspiracy Theory and they're telling you, "Well, just in case you were starting to believe in conspiracies, look at Jerry (Gibson). Isn't he a nutter! Only nutters believe in this stuff. Oh, and even though in the end Jerry discovers MK-ULTA was true, you now know that this kind of thing only happens in the movies, don't you? That's why we made Captain Picard from Star Trek as the bad guy. If you believe MK-ULTRA is true, you believe Star Trek is true. Aren't you silly! Now look, here's another BMW ad. Don't you want a BMW? Go back to sleep. Go back to sleeeeeep~~~~"
What is the name of this department? Do you have any further info on it?

The Pentagon has a department which specifically deals with allowing Hollywood to use equipment and vehicles for their films. The thing is, to get the equipment the Pentagon has to approve the script.
Is there anywhere to get hold of this list?
There is a massive list of films that were either approved or disapproved by the pentagon.
When you day "at the Pentagon's request", do you mean it a request that may be ignored, or is there no choice in the matter?
Some of your favorite films originally had scenes cut out of them at the Pentagons request or the producers wouldn't receive assistance.
It was funny when they suck up the nuke in a balloon thingo and then breathe it in to make their voices squeaky like helium.
Mars Attacks was refused assistance because it portrayed the US military being defeated by aliens.
In Wind Walkers (Nick Cage) a scene in which an American soldier steals a gold tooth from a dead enemy, was dropped from he movie at the insistance of the Pentagon.
Simply living there doesn't mean you know anything about how it works at the top and behind the scenes. The guys who collect the garbage at the Pentagon know less about government secrets than you do.

You're assuming that it's a broad thing covering all films, film-makers, directors, actors, etc. Of course it's ridiculous to think that the WHOLE industry is making propoganda, and nobody said that. If you read through the posts again, you'll see that this was clarified that it is only from the top down that these alterations, additions and creative directions come.
To make this connection you would have to wrap in the writers ~20,000 of them struggling away, the producers ~1000's of them, the agents ~1000's of them, and the studios that they pitch to and actually fund the productions. They make films to make a buck - plain and simple.
Again, a ridiculous statement and a sarcastic generalization intended to make the entire idea seem ludicrous and laughable. You're learning disinformation tricks well. This is the same reason why when we hear the words "conspiracy", our brains immediately start shouting "looney!" You should get a job with Psyops.
If this were the case is Pretty Woman an attempt to turn girls into hookers so they can find their big score and live happily ever after??
