Kirk Douglas's Favourite film)

Lonely are the Brave (1962 - Dalton & Donald Trumbo)

Lonely are the Brave is something rare, and almost unique: a leftist
American western. It is based on a novel by Edward Abbey, celebrator of the
desert and promoter of "eco-terrorism" in the never-filmed 1975 novel The
Monkey Wrench Gang. It was written by Dalton Trumbo, a witch-hunted
screenwriter who clearly loved and understood the genre, and directed by
David Miller, whose career seems otherwise undistinguished, with the
exception of Executive Action, another leftist feature written by Yordan.
Executive Action is an interesting, serious picture, but it's stilted in
comparison with Lonely are the Brave.

Z (1969 ­ Costa-Gavras - Feature),

Z is a 1969 French language political thriller directed by Costa Gavras,
with a screenplay by Gavras and Jorge Semprún, based on the novel of the
same name by Vassilis Vassilikos. The film presents a thinly fictionalized
account of the events surrounding the assassination of democratic Greek
politician Gregoris Lambrakis in 1963. With its satirical view of Greek
politics, its dark sense of humor, and its chilling ending, the film
captures the sense of outrage about the military dictatorship that ruled
Greece at the time of its making.

Privilege (1967 - Peter Watkins ­ Feature)

After directing several extraordinary documentaries for the BBC, Peter
Watkins made his first dramatic feature with this flawed but striking film
about Steven Shorter (Paul Jones), a pop singer in a future society
where entertainment is controlled by a totalitarian government. Shorter's
music and image is used to channel the impulses of rebellious youth; in one
concert sequence, the crowd watches him sing a plaintive plea for love
and understanding while locked in a cage surrounded by police officers armed
with clubs. While Shorter is remarkably popular, he's also living a life
created for him by the government, which Steven knows is a sham. When
Shorter's handlers decide to revis image into that of an obedient, religious
boy, he rebels, to his peril. Model Jean Shrimpton made her film debut here
as an artist comissioned to paint a portrait of Shorter. Privilege later
became something of a cult film; one of the film's admirers was rock poet
Patti Smith, who recorded one of "Steven Shorter"'s songs, "Set Me Free," on
her 1978 album Easter.
