"We are also very pleased to offer our viewers the renewed opportunity to once again dissect and discuss these influential films."

Hollywood releases hundreds of movies each year, and while most are simply entertaining, some actually change the way we think about the world. Through in-depth interviews and revealing clips, Movies That Shook the World explores why certain landmark movies were so explosive when they were released, the new paths they blazed, and why they remain so influential today. Additional seminal films previously spotlighted in the series include: Birth of a Nation, Do the Right Thing, Fatal Attraction, The China Syndrome, Last Temptation of Christ, The Exorcist, and American Graffiti.
