Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989)
According to Mary Litch in Philosophy Through Film various major ethical theories are represented by characters in this film. I haven't seen it yet; I'll delve further into these ideas later.
Extreme Measures (1996)
Do the ends always justify the means?
Run Lola Run (1998)
How do we know how the future will be affected by choosing one action over another?
Judgement at Nuremberg (1961)
How do you judge relative guilt and innocence? Does it make a difference if someone was "just following orders?"
Saving Private Ryan (1998)
Is it right to risk many lives to save just one?
Minority Report (2002)
Is it ethical to punish someone for a crime he has not yet committed?
I am seeking movies for a curriculum on Film Studies & Philosophy I'm writing for my homeschooled teen-ager and me. This section deals with ethics. How should we live? Comments and suggestions are enthusiastically welcomed. :-)
