10 Movies for Aliens

A day or two after coming to the conclusion that I needed to take some time off from writing, I came up with an idea for a novel.  Sigh.  Anyway, as part of my laying the groundwork for this novel, I asked myself if I could send ten movies out to aliens, which ones would I send?  These don’t have to be the greatest movies, or even ones I like, but movies that give a broad overview to what it is to be human and our view of the world.  Here is what I came up with.  (Since I don’t know that many non-English films, I just stuck with English ones.)  What do you think, and what would your ten be?

Gone With the Wind (1939)
Citizen Kane (1941)
Spartacus (1960)
2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
Dances with Wolves (1990)
Schindler’s List (1993)
Apollo 13 (1995)
Titanic (1997)
Amistad (1997)
Shrek (2001)
