Decisions Made

I have decided on a title for my presentation:

Anti-Establishment Views in Cinema

I’m very interested in films that challenge the status quo, that reveal truths about society and power structure. Wake up calls to corruption, countering the propaganda we see in newspapers.

Films that I could focus on:

Fight Club
Taxi Driver
The Lego Movie (debatably anti corporate)

I’ll definitely look into some older films, probably Soviet Montage and it’s calls for revolution.
