#10. God Bless America (Hoopla)

A liberal, amped-up version of Falling Down, where one flawed, middle-aged man and an aggressive teenage female take on the system. If you don’t mind lots of swearing and over-the-top violence, this movie could be perfect; it’s much better than the 68 percent it earned on Rotten Tomatoes.

#9. Avatar (Disney+)

Big business is bad, preserving the environment is good, and women have the answer. Avatar has all the ingredients to be one of the best forward-thinking liberal movies ever.

#8. District 9 (Netflix)

District 9‘s alien infestation flips the script, creating a racial statement about the treatment of immigrants not only by corporations but citizens too. By making the aliens innocent, District 9 is unique and well worth watching. It earned 82 percent from reviewers on Rotten Tomatoes.

#7. Robocop (Starz)

This all-action futuristic movie lacks modern diversity. However, it still delivers the perfect tale of corruption spanning big business, police, and organized crime. Director Paul Verhoeven even manages to make criticisms of consumerism and environmental issues throughout the movie. Perhaps Robocop can be considered ahead of its time, at least thematically?

#6. American Psycho (Peacock)

Is there a more disturbing view of the stockbroker than American Psycho? From an emotionless empty pursuit of money to finding that the only thing that satiates is murder. It’s a brilliant movie showing the emptiness of money, compared to the humanity of feelings. And it’s a razor-sharp satire at that, with a delightfully maniacal Christian Bale in the lead role.

#5. Frost/Nixon (Netflix)

Martin Sheen is fantastic as David Frost, the showbiz interviewer who, despite being out of his depth before the interview with former President Richard Nixon, comes out on top to create one of the most iconic moments ever recorded on film.

#4. JFK (HBO Max)

Oliver Stone’s JFK really took aim at government with a conspiracy theory that has since become mainstream and cultural. The movie blames the assassination on conservative politicians, the U.S. military, and even the Vice President at the time.

#3. Clerks (HBO Max)

The movie Clerks has a cult following, is part of modern pop culture and is a feel-good movie, regardless of how you’re doing in life. If you want to know what life was like for the young working class in the ’90s, there is no better movie.

#2. Pan’s Labyrinth (Netflix)

Pan’s Labyrinth is an adult version of Alice in Wonderland. A story where a young girl is outcast by a cruel stepfather, she looks for escapism and finds it in a dark and scary world, where she might just be its princess. Pan’s Labyrinth offers a new take on religion and family that’s not to be missed.

#1. A Clockwork Orange (Showtime)

Stanley Kubrick’s take on society in A Clockwork Orange is both provocative and brutal, taking aim at religion, prison, police, and more. All the while, he’s showing that through certain forms of strict education, society can be brainwashed and controlled. A Clockwork Orange is the best liberal streaming movie this month.
