This is a fascinating examination of how people (and major corporations) can make irrational decisions about investments.
Mind Over Money
Using analysis and experiment, this film explores why economists failed to predict the 2008 crash and why we so often make irrational financial decisions.
It is worth a watch if you haven't seen it already.

The part of the story about "Quants" is especially interesting in light of the rest of the show.
