I can't disagree with any of your choices. However also of consideration would have to be Oliver Stone's "JFK." There's nothing more controversial than a film suggesting the government's been hiding the truth for decades about this tragic event.

They need to be more specific on the criteria for the films, because I can think of dozens of films that were banned in countries (not the "faces of death" style films, I am talking about actual movies) that could make anyone question their moral compass just for watching it.
"Salo aka 120 Days of Sodom" has to be the most controversial of all time. It makes "Caligula" look like a family movie.
You're right about "JFK." It was easily more controversial than a number of films on the list. Maybe the reason it didn't make the cut was that the majority of Americans thought/think that there was a rather large conspiracy of some kind to assassinate JFK, and most of the outrage came from the powers-that-be. So maybe the selection was more from the standpoint of audience outrage/alienation/shock rather than Establishment outrage/alienation/shock.
I only saw parts of the show. Was Pulp Fiction included on the list?
No, Pulp Fiction wasn't on the list. Why would it be?
I have 2 movies I would put in the top 10, "Network" & "The Spook that sat by the Door".
