The Wave (also a novel). As atheists, you'd really appreciate this movie.
So I had a thought yesterday about an old film we saw in my Year9 social studies class called "The wave". So I looked it up (1981 TV movie), but luckily there was a 2008 german remake.
So I downloaded it, the ending was a weeeeee bit different but the point was all the same.

It's about how groups of people (in this case a senior high school class) are manipulated and things spiral out of control and get large quick etc..

It's suppose to be about the Nazi's (the lesson being that it could happen again, even today), but I think it plays perfectly if you replace Nazi's for *insert your religion of choice here* and I think it's a good indication of how religion started and how cults start up today.

It's a truly powerful movie, and if you're not gonna be a little bitch about having to read subtitles then I highly suggest people on this forum rent it and watch it (even the 1981 is good, and in english) and if not perhaps get the novel out from the library.
