My favorite films and shows about totalitarianism or set in a totalitarian society, and my watch-list. In totalitarian governments, the state has no limits to its power.

Recommendations are appreciated.

I got a few films to watch from this list on Mubi.

Many of Jan Švankmajer's films have symbolic imagery critical of totalitarianism.
The filmography of Jan Švankmajer


★★★ (Good)
The Animatrix - I recommend A Detective Story, a neo-noir from Shinichirô Watanabe, the director of Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo.
The Matrix Reloaded
They Live (John Carpenter)
★★☆ (Average)
The Matrix Revolutions
The Island (Michael Bay)
I'm not interested in seeing Equilibrium or
Logan’s Run

Huxley's Brand New World is appropriate for this list as well. Good collection, thank you.

Could you possibly add "The Mortal Storm (1940)".
