    Here's a few:

    Matewan (about the Coal Field Wars around 1920)

    Danton (french film about the "Reign of Terror")

    The Wild Bunch (Sam Peckinpaugh)

    Autofocus (tough to watch the fall of Bob Crane like that but what a lesson about un-checked lust and destruction)

    If I think of some others I'll list them.

    Anybody else taking notes? You can request a lot of movies from the library. They send it to your local one in less than a week.

    "Super High Me"


    It's a spin of the documentary "Super Size Me" but instead of eating McDonalds it is comedian Doug Benson and well I'm sure you can guess by the title. It's actually very good though. Shows him taking medical tests before and after the 30 days, both physical and mental. As well as some other stuff.




    When I saw the recommendations for "Thank You For Smoking" it reminded me of it.

    I'm not sure how many have seen it but its one of my favorites, Toy Soldiers starring Sean Astin, not to be confused with Small Soldiers.
