Off the top of my head I really love Death by Hanging. It's a critique of Japan's criminal justice system and racism in Japan, but more generally, I think, it draws attention to the absurdity of the state's monopoly on violence.

I don't like the term "personal politicization", but I really developed the outlook that I have after a lot of small factors throughout a life of feeling like an outsider and never quite buying into the lives I was told I should have. It helped that I had a couple important teachers who taught me to look at the world for myself at a relatively young age.

Cool. I figured the easiest way for now would probably be to go for the top film from the suggestion thread.

I have a few places where I can get hard to find stuff, too, depending on what we pick to watch.

Yeah. Chaos can be beautiful. It's inevitable and something to be embraced. In my eyes order easily becomes a threat to freedom.
