    I am guessing that it is plausible as an explanation that Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmakers Apocalypse (1991) was not on the list because there are few movies better than Coppola’s Apocalypse Now, but it still ranks as one of the greatest ‘making of’ film documentaries of all time.

    I would include Magnolia Diary on this list. Non-narrative, basically a fly-on-the-wall perspective of the behind the scenes (with some casually impromptu interviews thrown in). It’s a wonderfully vicarious way of hanging out on the set of P.T. Anderson’s master work.

    I like the inclusion of the two seasons of Project Greenlight, though I think you left out the BEST season, which was the third when they made the movie Feast. The only real downside is that it was on Bravo so there wasn’t the spicy language you initially got on HBO. But hey, your list inspired me to go watch the entire season three on YouTube, so thanks!
