Two from the 1960s by Gillo Pontecorvo might be a good place to start:
 
THE BATTLE OF ALGIERS (1965):  Algerian revolt against French colonialists
1954-62.
 
BURN! (1969):  Maltin description:  "Egomaniacal Sir William Walker (played
by Marlon Brando) is sent by the British to instigate a slave revolt
on a Portuguese-controlled sugar-producing Caribbean island."

          What the great philosophers have said vis-a-vis love (as
          interpreted by Matt Groening):
              Love is a perky elf dancing a merry little jig and
              then suddenly he turns on you with a miniature
              machine gun.
                                     --Kierkegaard
