Someone quoted it the other day, but:

Some people have a fear of snakes. That was a somewhat rational fear. And you could do something about it at least. Stay away from long grass and nature documentaries. Easy. Others have a fear of heights. That was manageable too. Avoid tall ladders. But how do you cope when your fear is something you can’t avoid? That you have no hope of staying away from? Being afraid of the sky, where are you going to go?

If docs count, Lost in La Mancha and Hearts of Darkness should be on there too.

I wonder if Bowfinger holds up...I remember loving it.

I tried watching Bowfinger again recently.  Didn't hold up too well for me.   And Hearts of Darkness is one of my favorite docs ever.
