Qin Empire, a Chinese TV series available on Netflix, has a scene in episode 6 at about 21 minutes in which the king of Qin is playing Go by himself while discussing state matters with one of his generals.

Edit: This show has Go scenes in most episodes, sometimes used to illustrate politics.

Wow, it even features in the trailer!

A pity nobody showed them how to hold the stones (I kind of hope it is deliberate, but I doubt it). And I don't think that that bump was a good move. On the other hand, everybody makes mistakes..

Back in 2014 there was this amazing little film called The Divine Move. I saw it on Netflix subtitled. It's about bangneki gamblers/cheaters and a violent conspiracy, with the game in close focus throughout. There's an amazing bit later on involving an ironic deathtrap where the code to get out is the solution to a tsumego.

Definitely a must-watch if you like action movies.
