“I want a film I watch to express either the joy of making cinema or the anguish of making cinema”, Truffaut once said. “I am not interested in all the films that don’t vibrate.” He was suspicious of directors who had hobbies, he couldn’t understand how you could love two things in life. He loved only one — cinema. A documentary charting the trajectory of one of the greatest filmmakers of all time.

The Typewriter, the Rifle & the Movie Camera (1996)

A film on the great American film director, Samuel Fuller, the Typewriter, the Rifle, and the Movie Camera is narrated by Tim Robbins, and with the participation of Quentin Tarantino, Jim Jarmusch, and Martin Scorsese, the documentary proves to be a fantastic search into Samuel Fuller’s films, his approach to filmmaking, and the art of cinema itself. Fuller is a machine that drops gem after gem as he speaks about film and how he writes with the camera. Though he may not be well-remembered among recent generations, his influence stretches well across film history. Martin Scorsese even confesses that he used a scene from Fuller’s The Steel Helmet for Raging Bull—and so it is more than worthwhile to see this documentary, especially as it depicts a filmmaker who easily crosses the line between Independent filmmaking and Hollywood studio moviemaking.

Terry Gilliam’s Ten Movies They Wouldn’t Let Me... | Film-related documentaries: The Best of | Scoop.it

Lost in La Mancha is a mesmerizing documentary about the unmaking of a movie—Terry Gilliam’s adaptation of Cervantes’s Don Quixote, starring Johnny Depp, which began filming in Spain in September 2000 and shut down several weeks later after a string of calamities. The moviemakers, Keith Fulton and Louis Pepe, had previously shot a documentary on the making of Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys and the director gave them complete access to the Quixote production, which they joined in Madrid eight weeks before filming began and stayed with until the post mortem. Gilliam even had himself wired with a special microphone that would allow Fulton and Pepe access to his every moan and whoop.
