Documentaries about movies or anything to do with movies! And yes, some of these stretch the definition of "documentary" quite…
Documentary on film maker Akira Kurosawa
Kurosawa ist mit Sicherheit einer der ganz großen japanischen Filmemacher, aber diese Doku ist (jedenfalls im O-Ton) ziemlich anstrengend anzuschauen.
At the end of this documentary, Kurosawa says that if you take the movies away from Kurosawa, you are left with nothing. What do you make a documentary about then? Well, you show a lot of clips from his movies, provide some cultural background, and revisit locations with actors and crew members. Then James Coburn and Clint Eastwood show up to reference their American remakes. Nothing here that warrants a three hour running time, esp with so many of Kurosawa's films getting overlooked. Yawn.
Great Documentary on a director I feel is the greatest Japanese Director ever and arguably the greatest Director ever.
