55 documentaries and one drama: A list of films about tax #taxflix

A discussion about tax documentaries unfolded on twitter over the past few days, dubbed #taxflix, HT @alvinmosioma.

I threaded a list that I had been keeping for some time, and the twitter discussion resulted in some key additions so I decided to upload the contents of my spreadsheet to this public google sheet where anyone can view or add to the list, but for those who simply want the current list (arranged by year), it is below.

The ones available on youtube are also available via this playlist.
