@dunpealhunterThanks man, I really appreciate it!I promise I'll check 'em out.
If i had to pick out a few which are definitive "escape the system" movies it would be:
THX 1138 (http://trakt.tv/movie/thx-1138-1971)First movie ever made from George Lucas. About a man who starts a secret relationship in a totalitarian society where everything is controlled by the government.
The Astronaut Farmer (http://trakt.tv/movie/the-astronaut-farmer-2006)About a man who despite all odds wants nothing more than to go to space in his own self-made spaceship. Eventually he succeeds even though NASA tries to stop and eventually ignores his accomplishments.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (http://trakt.tv/movie/one-flew-over-the-cuckoos-nest-1975)About a prisoner who is bored and acts crazy to be send to the insane asylum. There he tries to inspire his fellow patients and rebel against the head nurse.
Brazil (http://trakt.tv/movie/brazil-1985)About a man who in a dysfunctional totalitarian regime tries to fight against the bureaucracy of the system (i think, its a movie from Terry Gilliam, so half of it didn't really make any sense to me).
Trainspotting (http://trakt.tv/movie/trainspotting-1996)Its about escaping the system and normal every-day (Scottish) life through drugs, alcohol and sex.

What is the name of that one movie (I believe it was with Ryan Phillippe) were they had these bio-ports on the back of their neck (kind of like in Matrix)?
Gratitude!Puuhhh that's a lot to chew ;D
In "Fight Club" or "V" they brought the whole shit down.In "Into the wild" Christopher McCandless had the courage to get completely out of the system.That's the stuff I am looking for!
"Malcom X" & "Erin Brockovich" fought for justice, but they are still inside the system.So the thing is ... were do we draw the line here, hmmm???
Too many to count. Some of these movies below might not seem like it, but they are. For example Milk is about breaking up the system and changing it.
