I think American Beauty and MirrorMask are loaded with metaphors, symbolism, underlying plots, meanings etc.

Good v. evil and juxtapositions of powers are plentiful in these texts. These are deep pieces so they will need a keen mind. Well worth it though.

I'm doing Misery by stephen king. Can be seen as superficial but I think there's a lot to be said about the psychologocal powerplay.

Related text suggestions:
"Black Like Me" - John Howard Griffin's autobiography
"The Shawshank Redemption" - the director's name escapes me right now, but it's a popular movie and you'd have no trouble finding it.

Otherwise, any text will do as long as your bs smells like roses. I did BLM and a movie called "Gattaca", the movie had few examples, but enough to make some paragraphs, as long as you have the "evidence" to prove it. Frankly, if you were bothered, you could even use THIS http://www.homestarrunner.com/helmets.html as an ORT.
