I don't think I've seen anyone reference the OZ series from HBO

Also, for an element of educational value, I recommend:

Quiet Rage: the Stanford Prison Study

Zimbardo's experiment, conducted before the development of standards for
human study experiments, lead to the development of such standards.

Quiet rage [videorecording] : the Stanford prison study / Stanford

students at Stanford University and considers the causes and effects that
make prisons such an emotional issue. Documentary includes new film,
flashback editing, follow-ups 20-years later, and an original music score;

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
