Film as a Subversive Art ::: the complete list

Here is the fully complete list of all films mentioned in Amos Vogel's 1974 book Film as a Subversive Art.

The only exception is a few films mentioned as counter-examples of filmic subversion (like Love Story, The Wizard of Oz and Romeo & Juliet) which I have not included. I added the remaining films not yet listed in TMDB/Letterboxd and attempted to arrange them in the order which they appear in the book, with preference given to the spot of their review if they appear multiple places.
