From the worst to the best and everything in between.
Have added notes describing how the film qualifies for this list and to make it easier to distinguish whether the film may be of interest before watching.
Even comedic portrayals have value when looking back at history, since comedy is often a reflection of what is happening in contemporary society. Comedy is sometimes used as a soft approach to what may be seen as a risky subject, softening said subject in the eyes of the public.
I generally do not add short films to this list unless they are of significant or historical interest.
