This year has been a bonanza for films and documentaries of the lefty variety. It’s not something the Academy is interested in but if they gave an Oscar for the year’s best progressive film, there would be some fine choices. Docs like Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth, Rachel Grady’s Jesus Camp and Barbara Kopple’s Shut Up and Sing would all be contenders while commercial blockbusters like Clint Eastwood’s Letters from Iwo Jima and Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Babel would also likely garner support. Let us know what your vote would be by participating in The Nation‘s fourth weekly online poll. And please use the comments section below to let me know what good films I missed in my aforementioned list.
