So give me your top 5 political movies. Here are mine in no particular order.
1. All The Presidents Men I know, I know. I'm really going out on a limb here. You can't even wrap your head around this movie because you have no knowledge of it until right now.
2. Power Richard Gere with drumsticks and Gene Hackman with a flower on his lapel. This is an oft overlooked Lumet great.
3. Primary Colors Travolta is not without a couple of great performances. This is one of them. And Billy Bob Thornton as crazy Carville is a gem.
4. Escape From New York I ask you, is there any more politically charged movie than this one? Wold peace hangs in the balance and it's up to Snake Plissken to save us all.
5. Mr. Smith Goes To Washington This is the way we wish it were. And we all wish our politicians were as tall, handsome and kind as Jimmy Stewart.
