      Sorry, mine's not really a movie.  Its a TV series called "24" but its all centred around American Presidents. Love it.

        My absolute favorite part is Kim Jong Il singing "I'm So Ronery."  That, and watching Michael Moore blow up. smile

    The Last Emperor is hands down one of the best political and historical films I have ever seen.

      That was a good one and I just remembered 1984.  Not so much the movie but the book is probably one of the best political books of all time.

    Contrary to my usual policy not to participate in any forums where "the best" of something is discussed, I'm gonna jump right into this one -- not with a movie, but TV show: "The West Wing". I don't know about the best, but it's up there for sure.

    I love Wag the Dog. wink Robert De Niro is great. It's pretty out there in terms of downright insanity, but it's good entertainment and gives me a few laughs each time I watch it.

    Since we've already breached from movie into TV, I will add "John Adams" series.

    The HBO mini-series The House of Saddam was also interesting to watch.  I recently saw one installment on the one about Winston Churchill, and I definitely want to seet the rest of it on VOD when I have chance.

    I couldn't think of one before I started reading the responses, and maybe I'll think of a different one later, but those mentioned that I really liked: Hotel Rwanda, V for Vendetta, and Blood Diamond (in that order).

    Oh, just thought of a new one: The Last King of Scotland. Not historically accurate, but brilliant; would probably place it 2nd or 3rd in the list above...
