What are some films indepedant or otherwise, from anywhere in the world, fiction and non-fiction, that heavily relate to or are entirely about leftist thought, marxism, communism, left activism?


A Very British Coup


Children of Men and some Studio Ghibli films.



Interesting, I haven't seen anything from Studio Ghibli before. Which ones are most worth checking out?



I would call them left-leaning in their values, they are anti-war, Princess Mononoke is pro-ecology, but a lot of people probably don't consider those two to be extreme left positions. There's also never an explicit critique of capitalism, Spirited Away might imply the hierarchy of the hotel is oppresive but it never really comes up with a solution to it.



It does portrays The Fishes as paranoid assholes, but it doesn't portray any other group in a particularly good light anyway.




A film I liked which other people may not have seen is Siete días de enero. it's a film about the shooting of five spanish communist party members in 1977. It's good if you're interested in spanish history, especially la transición. You can watch it on daily motion (without english subtitles unfourtunately).

'The Crying Game' (1992) is not leftist, but it's about the IRA and it's really good.

More openly marxist is 'Sorry to bother you' which came out last year and is really worth watching if you haven't already.

Two films which involve lots of members of the british aristocracy being killed (which of course I don't support):

If… (1968) which is on youtube in good quality.

Kind Hearts and Coronets (1949)



Porko Rosso is anti-fash



Matewan tells the story of the union miners that went on strike in West Virgina during the 1920's, it goes over the formation of the union, the integration of black workers and immigrants, and the violence propagated by the mine bosses and their mercenaries. Pretty good film.

The most obvious answer would be The Human Condition trilogy by Masaki Kobayashi.

>The Human Condition is a Japanese epic film trilogy made between 1959 and 1961. The trilogy follows the life of Kaji, a Japanese pacifist and socialist, as he tries to survive in the fascist and oppressive world of WWII-era Japan. No Greater Love (1959) opens with Kaji marrying his sweetheart Michiko despite his misgivings about the future.


My mistake.
