Lost in La Mancha (2002)
This film is a documentary about the making of The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, as directed by Terry Gilliam, who you may know from such movies as Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and 12 Monkeys. Well, the movie never got made, due to catastrophic events that occurred during filming. Lost in La Mancha provides us with a record of the disaster that was this movie.
For film buffs interested in the goings-on of movie production, this film is must-see. For everyone else, it's still quite interesting, but drags in spots... so see it if you have no other documentaries to see.
