Directed by John Krish (1953)

We'll remember the rattle and the clang and the sway – and how snug it was to be inside when it was raining outside.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

An Inconvenient Truth
Directed by Davis Guggenheim (2006)

You know, more than 100 years ago, Upton Sinclair wrote this, that "it's difficult to get
a man to understand something if his salary depends upon his not understanding it."

The House Is Black
Directed by Forugh Farrokhzad (1963)

On this screen will appear an image of ugliness...a vision of pain no caring human being should ignore.
To wipe out this ugliness and to relieve the victims...is the motive of this film and the hope of its makers.

Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room
Directed by Alex Gibney (2005)

Oh I can't help myself. You know what the difference is between the state of California and the Titanic?
(And this is being webcast. I know I'm going to regret this.) At least when the Titanic went down, the lights were on.

Ryan
Directed by Chris Landreth (2004)

What? There's nothing I enjoy more than a good glass of cold beer.
Am I supposed to give that up for, like, tea or something? No, can't do that.

Dogtown and Z-Boys
Directed by Stacy Peralta (2001)

On one hand it's kinda sad that we were all bought out. On the other
hand, what does a kid do when you put a candy bar in front of him?

Restrepo
Directed by Tim Hetherington & Sebastian Junger (2010)

It’s sad to me that, as much as Captain Kearney would go down there and conduct different shuras and
tell 'em about the positives about what we can do to help them, it seemed like it didn’t go anywhere.
It seemed like we took one step forward and it seemed like they took two steps backwards.

Koyaanisqatsi
Directed by Godfrey Reggio (1982)

One of the most rapturous and riveting film experiences, an absolute enthralling sensory
overload of sights and sounds that melt back and forth into each other, building and flowing.
