Wars, conflict - it's all business. One murder makes a villain; millions, a hero. Numbers sanctify, my good fellow.

L'Argent (1983)

I think in the whole world things are going very badly. People are becoming more and more materialistic and cruel, but cruel in another way than the middle ages. Cruel by laziness, by indifference, egotism, because they think only about themselves and not at all about what is happening around them, so that they let everything around them grow ugly, stupid. They are all interested in money only. Money is becoming their God. God doesnโ€™t exist anymore for many. Money is becoming something you must live for. - Robert Bresson to Paul Schrader, โ€œRobert Bresson, Probably,โ€ Film Comment, Sept./Oct. 1977

In one of my favorite Star Trek episodes, The Void, Janeway and her crew are thrown into an isolated area of space full ships vying for survival. By cooperating and pooling their resources together, a loose federation of ships are able to escape the void.

This documentary is about how through psychoanalytic methods, the ruling class influenced and continues to influence not only politics and social norms, but how we think and live our lives.

My favorite films and shows dealing with class inequality and my watch-list. These aren't necessarily socialist, but they are open to socialist or populist interpretation.

Akira Kurosawa used to identify as a socialist. Jean-Luc Godard (Tout Va Bien (aka Just Great)) and Ken Loach (Kes / The Wind That Shakes The Barley) identify as socialists. Visconti was a Marxist. Chaplin was banned from re-entering the US by McCarthyites, although he was more idealistic than political. I don't know about the affiliation of the other directors.

This list is separate from my Communism list.

Recommendations are appreciated.
