Let’s take a break and kick off the weekend with a political violence movie night. Editor Joe Young, an expert in terrorism and civil conflict, lays out his favorite films that raise important questions (and sometimes answers) about the nature of political violence—along with a few that don’t. Most of these aren’t direct histories about violent events, but they can serve as jumping-off points for thinking about political violence.
Check out Joe’s recommendations—and tell us what you would add to the list. Happy watching!
