"Sometimes Hollywood makes films to tell an important story within our shared history. Sometimes it's to give visual presence to an unknown story of war or to simply viscerally entertain. But other times, it's to push a political agenda and sway perspectives.

Other times propaganda is simply silly—think Tom Cruise in Top Gun. These are 10 films that, for one reason or another, did a hell of a job contorting reality."
