Amos Vogel's Film as a Subversive Art

When I was first introduced to Amos Vogel's Film as a Subversive Art I quickly threw together a list of the titles mentioned in the book in alphabetical order so that I could work through Vogel's catalogue of subversive cinema. I decided to redo this list, since my original effort was minimal and didn't provide context for why each of the films was included. I have also made this list version far more comprehensive, since I have included the titles of films that are not available on TMBD.

N/A signifies a film that is not on TMDb.
