CSA: Confederate States of America (2004)
I can think of few more chilling American scenarios than what would have happened if the South had won the Civil War, and director Kevin Willmot's mockumentary, told from the point of view of an English film crew, illuminates the things America has done right since 1865 and also helps highlight the things we're still doing wrong. The film uses humor to make some of its harshest points, but it is deadly serious at heart. Our country continues to wrestle with issues of race, but knowing that Barack Obama's in the White House makes it a little easier to swallow this bitter pill.
