Top 25 Documentaries About Filmmaking
I assume I’m like many of you. Obsessed with finding behind-the-scenes documentaries about my favorite movies. For years, filmmaking documentaries have allowed filmmakers to get a fly on the wall insight into how some of their favorite films came together. I remember being 7 and staying up to watch a featurette on the making of Raiders of the Lost Ark. I think I enjoyed that as much as the film itself. And in many cases, I enjoy these documentaries more than the actual film.
So, here it is. My top 25 documentaries about filmmaking in no particular order.
Unfortunately there isn’t even a good trailer available of this documentary. Here’s one I found with some guy yelling in Russian over the audio.
19. Every Pixel Tells A Story (2002)
9. Wrath of Gods (2006)
And of course…
Raiders of the Lost Ark Featurete (1981)
