10 films the Government would rather you not see

These are 10 films that I believe if watched by the majority of US citizens there would be demands of impeachment, a push to pull out of Afghanistan/Iraq and a complete shift in thought or at the very least some questioning of the government.

It’s also amazing to me how few people have seen most of these films even the “popular” ones.
