Government in the movies

We mentioned in Circuit that March will be March Government Movie Madness on FCW.com. We are going to conduct a March Madness-style bracket competition to find the best movie with a government theme. That, of course, spurred us to create a list of government-themed movies. Using the FCW Insider blog and a lot of help from you, we have collected what we believe is one of the most complete lists of such movies.

If you have additions, post a comment on the FCW Insider blog.
