ITT we post cool movies we really like

mine is 1984

In a dystopian 1984, Winston Smith endures a squalid existence in the totalitarian superstate of Oceania under the constant surveillance of the Thought Police. The story takes place in London, the capital city of the territory of Airstrip One (formerly "either England or Britain"). Winston works in a small office cubicle at the Ministry of Truth, rewriting history in accordance with the dictates of the Party and its supreme figurehead, Big Brother. A man haunted by painful memories and restless desires, Winston is an everyman who keeps a secret diary of his private thoughts, thus creating evidence of his thoughtcrime.
His life takes a fatal turn when he is accosted by a fellow Outer Party worker — a mysterious, bold-looking girl named Julia — and they begin an illicit affair.

Winston Smith: Thoughtcrime is death. Thoughtcrime does not entail death. Thoughtcrime IS death. I have committed even before setting pen to paper the essential crime that contains all others unto itself.

Scoring a 7.9/10 on imdb's critic reviews, Conspiracy is an amazing introduction to committee politics. The control of what is on the agenda of the meeting, where conversations take place, and who is even allowed to speak freely are all powerfully explored elements of power in this film. If you like political roleplay and storytelling conflict, this movie will have a thing or two to show you. The story of how a committee in secret meeting can organize the systematic removal and destruction of a minority people with a rich and productive culture is a bone-chilling reminder of the capacity of the human frame for evil.

Also, Kenneth Branagh.
