The one that first comes to mind is Crash. It would show how having a predjudge about people can destroy you.The second is An Inconvient Truth.Everyone should see this movie. It shows how all of us can help preserve the planet.The third is Schindler'S List.The Holocaust should be remembered. The fourth may not be made yet. There should be a film that shows the beauty of all the faiths of the world.The fifth is the mini-series Roots. It would show why slavery is immmoral.

Crash was one of the movies on my list...I totally agree!! I have seen Schindler's List...but that's more a depiction of history (it goes on my list of re-enactment of our past: Amistad, Roots, Hotel Rwanda, etc...). I'll have to add An Inconvenient Truth to my movie list...

I actually think that "The Day The Earth Stood Still" is a great movie for leveling the playing field between most people. Everyone walks out muttering, "Klaatu Barata Nikto!" and sighing. It really makes one think about the mechanism of government, armies, politics, and the easy way that a person can be mistaken as a spy, or how hard it is sometimes to recognise a friend. Uhm, other than that, perhaps a nice viewing of "The Life of The Dali Llama"? That surely has some interesting aspects to it.

I think that Independence Day had some great world worthy messages. When the whole world put aside borderlines, religious differences, prejudices and wars to pull together in a common goal I found it very touching and heartwarming. Kind of brought out a "world-based patriotism" feeling instead of a "country-based patriotism". I just hope it doesn't take such a drastic worldwide event to get us to pull together like that though it probably will, human nature being what it is.
