Political theory and film

Check this out. Russell Arben Fox is fleshing out a bit of jolly good sense: a political theory class designed around movies.

The class is going to open with a discussion of movies and politics, and specifically some of great examples of films inspiring, reflecting, or shaping political discourse in America; if possible, I'm going to show some clips from The Best Years of Our Lives (regarding America's postwar aspirations and supposed ideological "consensus") and Network (dealing, obviously, with the breakdown of such).
Thanks to Ralph Luker for the link.
