Gorbachev: Hero or villain?
Not a documentary but an American film made in 1990, (i.e. before the collapse of the USSR) that compiles the news reports of the previous year. An excellent insight into how the events of 1989 were seen by those who lived through it. An excellent antidote to the teleological tendency to see the events of 1989 as inevitable.
