Bananas (1971)

Director: Woody Allen. Cast: Woody Allen, Louise Lasser, Carlo Montalban, Howard Cosell. 82 min. Comedy.

Allen's fourth directed movie, an amusing satire on how everybody was gung-ho about revolutions in the 60s and 70s. Amazingly, some of the movie's memorable moments (especially the opening sequence, where a Latin America president is knowingly assassinated in public, and the US-propped dictator announces his love for democracy) maintain their poignancy even to this day. Watch for Sylvester Stallone in a very negligible role as a subway thug.
