#rsrh Big Hollywood’s Top 25 Leftist films.

If you have an hour or so to kill, go to the bottom of this page and start scrolling up.  John Nolte does a very good job in both analyzing not only why a movie is Left-wing, but why it’s still good in spite of that particular and lamentable character flaw.  I haven’t seen all of these films, but the ones that I did see I liked.

And I’m going to check out Dead Man Walking pretty much on Nolte’s recommendation; I liked Bob Roberts in spite of itself, and if Tim Robbins made a better film…

PS: John, if I can make a guess… the reason why you hated the movie Pleasantville is possibly because you didn’t watch it as it should have been watched: as a Cthulhu Mythos-style cosmic horror film.  I’m being perfectly serious: Ken Hite worked out that interpretation, and it makes a good deal of sense.  As much as your argument that Apocalypse Now reflects a literal wandering through Hell…

    I recently saw the MASH 40th(!) anniversary showing on TCM or AMC. As Nolte says, it seems sexist and 100% politically incorrect by today’s standards. He forgot the black quarterback/surgeon named ‘Spearchucker’ Jones. And I still have a thing for Joann Pflug as Lt. Dish.
