For the financial crisis, I like "Inside Job" and, from a fiction perspective, "Margin Call". Really, if you haven't seen "Margin Call", you need to. The final speech by Jeremy Irons is priceless.
On a completely different note, check out "Hudsucker Proxy" by the Coens. The segment on the pricing of the hula hoop is classic.
Finally, for something rather out there, "The Return of Martin Guerre" has more economics (transition to capitalism) than most people initially notice. You can think about it as "how a landless peasant acquires land in a society with no market it in -- where land is allocated through kinship". (Become a kin.)
