I would recommend K-19.
It's a very good immersion into cold-war subs.

There's a good sub film, starring Gene Hackman. I think the title is "Crimson Tide" but I'm not 100% certain I remember the title correctly. I believe it is set aboard USS Alabama, a nuclear powered hunter killer or maybe it's a boomer, can't remember which. Anyhow, there's a power struggle over controversial orders, to launch nukes or something like that. Good human drama film, also starring Denzel Washington, if I recall correctly. Google for it; I'm sure you'll find it.

Edit: Found it; a few big stars in it:

Try Run Silent Run Deep.

Also for one on the battle of the atlantic try the Cruel Sea (which i'm sure has been mentioned before)

The Enemy Below is one of my favorite Sub movies, it is a good depiction of the cat and mouse game between a U.S. Escort and a German U boat. It is also mentioned in the movie Crimson Tide as the best Submarine Movie of all time.
