Movies That Shook World

-A +A

Of the thousand movies released each year, most serve as a mindless means of escape from the drudgery of day-to-day life. A handful, however, are of such social significance that they stimulate introspection and discussion to the point where they actually alter the way we think about the world.

This fall, the AMC Network is debuting Movies That Shook the World, a weekly series which explores the cultural contributions of some of the most influential flicks of all time. Narrated by actor Jeff Goldblum, each half-hour installment will be devoted entirely to one picture.

Among the seminal cinema classics to be spotlighted are Fatal Attraction, The Birth of a Nation, American Graffiti, The China Syndrome, The Exorcist, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Graduate, The Last Temptation of Christ, and Do the Right Thing, which is set to air Friday, September 23rd at 10 PM (check local listings). Discussing the Spike Lee contribution, which is credited with addressing the question of the color line in confrontational fashion, will be Spike himself, actors Giancarlo Esposito, Debbie Allen and Rosie Perez, director Kasi Lemmons (Eve’s Bayou), Professor Todd Boyd, and others.
