#MovieMonday - Ten Libertarian Movies

I’ve put together a list of ten movies that have always struck me as having libertarian themes. These are worth watching with your friends and local libertarian activist groups (such as your Young Americans for Liberty chapter or Liberty on the Rocks group among others) to have some fun and an opportunity for discussion afterward.

The movie and its trademark Guy Fawkes mask have become cultural icons that resonate deeply in libertarian circles.
