There are very rare politically charged films that are found today and the reason for that is because according to ‘USA today’ analysis, 26 movies that were released in the past 20 years and which had politically charged theme only four films did a business of over $100 million and nearly two-thirds did a business less than $50 million. But apart from these statistics, directors apart from Michael Moore are still trying for politically charged movies such as ‘Lions for lambs’, a Robert Redford’s movie which highlights the US involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan. Other example includes the movie of Jolie’s Bosnian, ‘In the land of blood and honey’ (DeBarros and Bowles).
The genre of films that are politically charged other than the documentaries include a suspense drama ‘Betrayed’ and ‘The zookeeper’. The musical film includes ‘School daze’ and the epic include ‘Syriana’ which have a politically-charged themes. Recently there had been a fiction film on a politically charged theme, ‘Route Irish’ and ‘the day the Earth stood still’. These films cover the social issues as well as political issues (DeBarros and Bowles).
The cultural and societal change has made a differentiation in the present world and the spirit of sixties. Recent films on politically charged theme prove that directors are still trying to come up with the films of every genre to highlight the political issues.
