"Tak zhit nelzya" (meaning "You Can't Live Like That") is a documentary comparing and contrasting the United States and Soviet Union.

At one point, we even get to hear Glenn Miller's "In the Mood" to introduce the USA! Anyway, it's not the greatest documentary ever made, but I recommend it as a look at the differences - and occasional similarities
between the superpowers.
