Five sociologists, all known for their use of visual materials in the classroom were asked to each profile a motion picture that they particularly like to use. These motion pictures were to be chosen for any of a number of reasons, important content, terrific for sociological analysis, popular but misleading, "brings home" an important point. These mini-reviews are presented here to introduce one to these films as well as to their reviewers. "Controlling Interest: The World of the Multinational Corporation" has been reviewed by sociologist Vincent Mosco who has used the film successfully in basic sociology as well as mass media classes. He uses it because it conveys clearly how multinational corporations influence lives of people throughout the world. "Men's Lives," reviewed by sociologist Carla B. Howery follows the process of socialization into male sex roles from childhood through adulthood and ties it into education, relationships with women, the military, work and societal values. Some excellent interviews with men and boys are included.
