Patrick McGoohan's "The Prisoner"; Hendrix's late Sixties trilogy; pretty much everything Toni Morrison has ever written; Heiner Mueller's plays; Jan Svankmajer's animation classics; etc. etc. etc. Actually, it's hard to find great works of art nowadays which are *not* deeply and openly politicized (Thomas Pynchon may come close, but there are Silicon Valley tweaks in his stuff, too).

But, of course, my definition of politics is heavily tilted towards the cultural, anyway.
