The Mission (period piece, but amazing, and applicable today)
The Merchants of Cool (PBS Frontline - how media sells stuff to kids. nonfiction, but piercing)
Romero - by reputation - haven't seen it.
To Kill a Mockingbird
Doctor Strangelove
Dead Man Walking
Roger and Me
Election
Schindler's List
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
The Grapes of Wrath

and here's some more i came up with looking at AFI and Amazon:
