Linguistic LingField(s):  General Linguistics

Query:   A while ago, a list of linguistically significant films was posted on
Linguist List.

This was in Nov. 1996, thus in need of an update. I would be interested in
compiling a list of more recent films that we can add to this list (and
older films that were missed last time). Also, if anyone knows any
linguistically significant novels, I would be happy to receive those, as
well, as it fits in this general category. I will post a summary.
