Documentaries about Movies

Documentaries about movies or anything to do with movies. And yes, some of these stretch the definition of "documentary" quite a bit.

Make sure to sort by year or name.

There's far too many of these documentaries being made and/or added to Letterboxd all the time to make a comprehensive list, so I'm just taking suggestions. Leave one in the comments and I'll add it to the list.
