Film: Michael Moore's Roger and Me. Also, Harlan County, by I forget whom.
The latter is slightly more upbeat; the former is very depressing--maybe
apt for today. Moore was showingh it in Germany (E&W) when the Wall came
down and it played some role in the debates over re-unification.

If you are looking for pop culture stuff relevant to Marx, you might think
about Matt Groening's cartoon book, Work Is Hell.
