@tsarstepan,
Two documentaries from PBS and their documentary series, American Experience.

Ruby Ridge (2017) and
Oklahoma City (2017)

Two violent events that ... help define the Trump rise to his presidency.

A true story of a German prosecutor calling Hitler as a witness against a group of Brownshirts on trial for murder. Brownshirts were an organized mob of out-of-work men armed with guns left over from WWII who roamed the streets looking for the opposition to persecute, beat up, or murder.

The prosecutor wanted to show that Hitler, who was up for election, would resort to violent means to achieve his goals. He goaded Hitler until he lost control and admitted that he approved of the Brownshirt's tactics. He won the election anyhow.

Not a documentary but a historical adaptation made for television.

@tsarstepan,
An existential nightmare of a documentary with a ton of Oscar buzz and shortlisted for the 2019 Academy Awards:
Shirkers (2018)

An unorthodox mystery where the criminal in the crime was known but the motivation will likely never be understood.

@tsarstepan,
I hesitate to put this one here.
1. I haven't seen it yet.
2. It looks all staged (in mockumentary style but not letting the audience know that - a major pet peeve of mine).
Wrinkles the Clown (2019)
