LAW SUMMARY and MOVIE SUGGESTIONS are: The International (2009), Law Abiding Citizen (2009), Der Baader Meinhof Komplex (2008), and Reversal of Fortune (1990) show that worst result can happen with respect to the law. Return to the Land of Wonders (2004) and The Revolution Will Not Be Televised (a.k.a. Chavez: Inside the Coup)(2002) may cover some constitutional issues; the law is often archaic regarding health, education, welfare, poverty and spousal and child support, especially incarcerating persons for owing money to the government or for spousal and child support in a down economy. There has been some attempt to change the laws to be etroactive in medical malpractice cases or to extend the statute of limitations in personal injury cases; these changes usually start in California. Flash of Genius (2008), I am Sam (2001), A Comedy of Power aka Claude Chabrol (2006), Fracture (2007/I), North Country (2005), Inherit the Wind (1960), Anatomy of a Murder (1959), Class Action (1991), Runaway Jury (2003), Primal Fear (1996), The Devil's Advocate (1997), Michael Clayton (2008); ...And Justice for All (1979); The Firm (1993), The Client (1994), The Rainmaker (1997), The Chamber (1996), The Gingerbread Man (1998), A Few Good Men (1992), Philadelphia, Presumed Innocent (1990), A Few Good Men (1992), Reversal of Fortune (1990), The Winslow Boy (1999), Music Box, Amistad, Time to Kill (1996), The Pelican Brief (1993), Rampage (1988), Kramer vs. Kramer, The Verdict, A Soldier's Story (1984), Compulsion (1959), Nuts (1987), The Caine Mutiny (1954), A Cry in the Dark aka Evil Angels (1988), To Kill a Mockingbird, 12 Angry Men, Witness for the Prosecution, True Believer (1989), In Cold Blood, Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills (1996), Young Mr. Lincoln (1939), Advise & Consent (1962), and Judgment at Nuremberg are courtroom dramas! True Believer (1989), Fearless (1993), Resurrecting the Champ (2007), The Legend of Bhagat Singh (2002), State and Main (2000) suggest that there needs to be more sensitivity about the need to issues to be brought before the courts. THIS AUTHOR SUSPECTS THAT THE COURTS ARE JAMMED WITH FRAUDENT CASES ON BOTH THE PLAINTIFF AND DEFENSE SIDE, AND THE MOST IMPORTANT CASES RARELY MAKE IT TO THE COURTHOUSE DUE TO LACK OF LEGAL TALENT, MONEY, OR FEAR OF REPRISAL! Find Me Guilty (2006), The Guilty (2000), Justice Denied (1989) are also interesting. Liar Liar, My Cousin Vinny and Legally Blonde are comedies. THE PERRY MASON SERIES LIKELY IS STILL INTERESTING. Some abscure Documentaries that tangent legal or social issues are: Super High Me (medical marijuana use), Hard Knock Life (An Astounding Chronicle of Life Behind Bars 2007), DysFunktional Family, War Dance (2007), Strange Culture (2007), Hard Knock Life (An Astounding Chronicle of Life Behind Bars 2007) and Ghetto Ass Fight Club (The War Zone 2007). Most of the problems with laws exist in health, education and welfare. Often this is about reporting problems by lower governmental entities that wish to steal from the Federal or State government. It can be also between similar governmental entities, or even infighting between different branches of the same level of government, such as the post office inspectors fighting with the FBI over prosecution of a case. It also tends to happen regarding sales tax revenue, traffic problems, and so-call vice industries bringing problems to another region other than by those who live in that region. Unfortunately, very few movies, especially documentaries, exist about some of the issues in this form.
