My Favorite Leftist/Left-Leaning Fiction

Tv shows and movies I genuinely love with themes that are: socialist, communist, anarchist, syndicalist, feminist, environmentalist, pro-LGBTQIA+, anti-capitalist, anti-imperialist, anti-colonialist, anti-fascist, anti-war, anti-racist, etc.

I won't be including shows and movies that I don't like, even if I agree with the politics of it. While I think such messaging is important, I think a work of fiction should first be good. There are shows and movies out there that I love despite of disagreeing with some of their messaging.
