Question of the Day #70: Atheism/Freethought in Movies?

The June service of the North Texas Church of Freethought will examine instances and portrayals of freethought in the movies. But just how much have atheism and freethought been shown in this medium?

Which movies can you name that show characters who are either without a god-belief or show themselves to be freethinkers?

david: most of your movies are anti-theistic, not atheistic movies.

I haven't seem many of these movies. Are there any specific scenes that stick out?
