To:

The subject material is a very broad topic. Maybe it should be narrowed down by time period and geographical region, plus emphasis on non-fiction?

Maybe can be narrowed by geographical (USA) but i dont think the list can narrowed otherwise.

I will check it.

For instances, the stories of Moses, Jesus, Ben-Hur, Constantine, Vlad Țepeș, Ghengis Khan, Cristoforo Colombo, Henry VIII, Elizabeth I, James I/VI, William Shakespeare, Robert Catesby, Guy Fawkes, Louis XVI, Thomas Jefferson, Benedict Arnold, John Adams, Aaron Burr, Napoleon Bonaparte, Joaquin Murrieta, Harriet Tubman, Carrie Nation, Eleanor Roosevelt, Mohatma Ghandi, Ho Chi Minh, Gore Vidal and Erin Brockovich, just to name an extremely tiny few, are effectively political. Some stories have been told, dramatized, retold, over and over, whereas others are confined to documentary biopic confines if standing the test of time at all. Narrowing things down to the United States helps, I suppose, since they have only formally been around since 1776, 1781 or 1789, but they have an intricate political history, ever expanding beyond their official borders.

Ah ok, I got your point, so either I add too many movies to my list or I limit it by number so I can define a time or other boundary, right?

@jeorj_euler I bound it to biography and 20th century, i guess it is better now.

The movies on the list are about the 20th century, but not all made in the 20th century, so perhaps the title should say 

 

... Movies About the 20th Century

Please change "Poll Suggestion" to "Live Poll" in the discussion thread title and change the settings so that it appears under "Praise" now, rather than "Idea."
