Why We Fight series, Frank Capra Report Abuse

Comments:
Frank Capra's series of WW2 films are pretty much the quintessential propaganda films. Their impressive scope is only one of many reasons to watch.

The Battleship Potemkin, Sergei Eisenstein Report Abuse
20 points - added 13 years ago by JDBLists - 1 comment
Comments:
There isn't a film-student alive that hasn't seen Potemkin about a million times. It's a pioneering piece of film history; it demonstrated the use of many conventions we take for granted today.

This remarkable film lionized the German people and, more specifically, the Nazi ideals. It's recognized as being a successful piece of propaganda for one of the darkest movements in human history.

The Birth of a Nation, D.W. Griffith Report Abuse
6 points - added 13 years ago by JDBLists - 1 comment
Comments:
Griffith didn't start out to make a propaganda film, but The Birth of a Nation nonetheless became a compelling -and polarizing- film that some used to defend evil practices.
