A resonably good list.  pleased to see "Boogie Nights" on there.  Would you add anything?

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.
