The Lives of Others is a 2006 film which tells the story of life in East Germany in the days before the wall fell.  It does a fantastic job of presenting life in a surveillance state. It won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language film in 2006.  The film is over 2 hours long and available in subtitled form, not in dubbed format.  Yet, the film is spell-binding. I cannot recommend this film enough.  It is especially relevant in this day and age.
