Are there any good dramatizations of the sack of Baghdad by the Mongols?

I finished reading Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon and got it into my head that he should write a novel about the sack of Baghdad. Now I really want to find any novels (or films, or whatever) that present the wonders of the Islamic empire, the fury of the Mongol army, and the forces and events surrounding the burning of the Library of Baghdad. Any suggestions?
