These movies all belong to the American Film Institute's Top 100 Greatest American Films, movies that marked on American society in matters of style and substance. and they have another thing in common, they define their era and work as an indirect social comment on the mood, atmosphere and also social/political climate of the time of their release.

Which of these era-defining or timely AFI classics is your favorite?

I've been around only since the 70's, and not in the US of A, so I can't exactly know how it really was in those times. But with some movies you get a feeling of "this must really be how it was." From this list, they are In The Heat Of The Night and Midnight Cowboy, two of my all-time favorites.

ElMo,

You introduction is one run-on sentence. I recommend that you split up the sentence into two sentences, such as:

They have another thing in common; they define their era and work as an indirect social comment on the mood, atmosphere and also social/political climate of the time of their release.

Taxi Driver
FYC Fight Club
I'm really not sure if Fight Club is on the Afi charts, but it is one of the first movies that portrays the rise of consumerism prophetically as it would mark the next few years.
