10 Iconic Propaganda Films

Please note that some of these films are dependent on offensive stereotypes and may contain false or misleading content to promote negative ideologies. These films are iconic because they effectively persuaded people throughout history. I think it’s important to be aware of the way propaganda is used in film so that we can challenge ourselves not to be manipulated in the present and future.

Nathan Fielder got a shout out from Men’s Health, but how accurate was he?

❝It’s natural to worry that the colossal success of a tightly formatted movie such as the new ‘Transformers’ will only stiffen the resolve of studios to repeat it, or will only solidify the shapes of existing pigeonholes and sideline unusual and distinctive movies even further. Yet such concern reduces to a mere snobbery of taste, a straw-person diversion akin to an opera house blaming low attendance at a production of ‘Salomé’ on a Miley Cyrus concert.❞
