Morality and the Movies: Reading Ethics Through Film: Dan Shaw: Continuum “Shaw makes morality go down as easily as a bag of popcorn. No more will philosophy be dull.

The 18 Best Philosophical Movies of All Time Whether realizing the art form of filmmaking or not, directors and writers often use their preferred visual medium to tell a story.
