Ben X (Belgium) - https://www.amazon.com/Ben-English-Subtitled-Marijke-Pinoy/dp/B011SY14RO/ - A Belgian (in Flemish) disturbing "documentary-style drama" about a young adult with Autism that is heavily bullied, with a constant theme of a heavy escape into video game playing (MMORPG, World of Warcraft style) with frequent video game overlays,  This is very unpleasant, but in speaking with persons on the spectrum, they said they "relate too closely". They said it was a really good depiction of their own experiences, though they can't watch it again because it was so painful.

Spectrum: A Story of the Mind - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01FRFVN1M/ - Excellent 24 minute video on the sense perception theory aspect of Autism. Recommend everyone view and discuss.
