Critique Duo is a short film project composed of two short films which are based on the themes of socio-political critique in contemporary societies. Critical thinking, conditioning, intellectual independence and herd behavior are the topics discussed with the first film, Crossing the Yellow Line. Authoritarianism in family and government, adolescence of societies and decision making mechanisms in individuals are discussed in the second film, Family Portrait. The films state the problems indirectly with the use of metaphors and raise questions with a critical and analytical approach. This paper discusses theoretical parts of issues that those two films refer in relation to philosophy. In addition to giving a general outlook of cinema and its relation to philosophy, sociology and politics, the paper focuses more on the subtexts of films. Critique Duo does not directly propose a solution. Rather, it opens a way for the audience to be aware of those problems and evoke the audience to re-think.
