What's a fun action/crime movie from the 60s or early 70s that doesn't star a secret agent, criminal, cop, or reporter? I'm thinking an everyman gets caught up in some spy-style hijinksómaybe halfway between James Bond and North by Northwest, but open for interpretation.

Pulp, starring Michael Caine?

Are there any documentaries or shows that deal with media bias or how to interpret media?

I ask because my wife recently watched the documentary titled "American Factory." This is a 2019 film produced by Barack Obama's film production company and purports to show the culture clash that occurs when a Chinese company purchases and re-opens a General Motors plant in the Ohio. The problem with it is it's basically the same premise as the1986 Michael Keaton comedy "Gung Ho," which shows the culture clash when a Japanese company purchases a failing American auto plant in the Midwest.

I've not seen the 2019 film, but the similarities are too hard to ignore and it feels like the same anti-Japanese tropes from the 1980s are being recycled into Anti-Chinese tropes. My wife thinks that the 2019 film has to be accurate because "they just film what happens, they can't make things up." She is resistant to the idea that filmmakers, even ones who make documentaries, can craft and shape narratives.

I'd like to show her a program that explains that just because something is in a documentary, it's not necessarily accurate to reality. Please no Youtube channels though, she won't sit still for them.

I could show her "Michael Moore hates America."
