Philosophy: A Text with Readings - Philosophy at the Movies

Philosophy at the Movies
At the end of each section of the text is a short paragraph that summarizes a film that addresses the topics treated in that section, along with questions that link the film to those topics.

Introduced in the 10th edition of the textbook, but I haven't been able to get my hands on the 10th edition, only the 9th and 11-13th. This list includes all movies from the 11-13th editions. Click show notes to see what section each movie is for and what editions of the book it was mentioned in. Stars are for the primary movie of that edition's section.
