It's not as hands-on as the kinds of documentaries here, but I thought the first "An Evening With Kevin Smith" was pretty indispensable.

How about those Documentaries on the WB Kubrick set? Also...Curious Case of Ben Button has a good doc too.

1. "Movies" is the plural, "Movie's" is a possessive
2. It is "movie-making"
3. Full Tilt Boogie, the making of From Dusk Till Dawn.

-- Final Cut: The Making and Unmaking of Heaven's Gate --

A very good cautionary tale. You can watch it in eight parts on youtube, with part one here:

That one documentary, about the proper use of apostrophe marks? Better than "The Sorrow and the Pity"!

TCM's '39 From 1939, Hollywood's Greatest Year' is excellent.

Warner is doing a '1939' documentary this year, but I haven't seen it.

the only two i could sit through and loved in its entirety were the ones from
"Platoon".
&
"Iron Man"

i'm not sure if you classify them as docus, but they were feature length and highly engrossing and interesting.

The recently released Cinematographer Style looks good as well. Here's (http://www.cineaste.com/articles/emcinematographer-styleem) a review of it.

Scorsese's documentaries on Italian and American films are excellent. Apparently he's going to be making one on British films as well. Also worth watching are Easy Riders, Raging Bulls, Z Channel: A Magnificent Obsession, A Decade Under the Influence and A Constant Forge, a lengthy Cassavetes doc included in his Criterion box set.

First one that I could think of.

I would second Z Channel: A Magnificent Obsession. Technically it may fall under TV, but much of it's about movies.

For move making, there's Mad Hot Ballroom. :)
