i don't know what all 'appropriate' encompasses, but 'kiss kiss, bang bang' has some good phil. language stuff in it (e.g. ambiguity).

As you know, there are lots of movies produced from Continental philosophy perspective which have also relations to language.
But as for analytic philosophy I hope this helps: http://www.film-philosophy.com/vol2-1998/n36guttenplan


I showed "the battle of algiers" in a war ethics class once. It spurred some good discussion about what (if anything) the conditions are under which terrorism is morally ok. Same with torture. It also got students to briefly see things from a terrorist's point of view, which was helpful. The movie is historically accurate too, supposedly.
