We offer you a list of the best documentaries about film Directors, published in the last five years.10. Arirang (2011) Kim Ki-Duk
The only autobiographical film on the list.
Kim Kidok fell into a serious creative crisis, after the filming of his movie nearly killed the actress. Because of the internal contradictions of the film Director a few years could not be removed, and "Arirang" was an attempt of reconciliation with art. The process of filming was as painful and cruel for him, as his films.
"Arirang" is too personal and specific for most of the audience was not well received. Hardly a pleasure to watch as Kim Kidok shouts in front of the camera so that we begin to doubt his mental abilities. The meaning of this was unclear, but the Director never seems to be interested in how to build narrative. Instead, he took kinodnevnik, frightening and difficult to understand, but at the same time, which is one of the most original and interesting things over the past few years.
9. "Roman Polanski: Kinokamera" (2011) Laurent Botero
"Kinokamera" built as a long conversation between two old friends — Roman Polanski and his longtime colleague Laurent Botero. This conversation occurs in one of the tumultuous moments of the life of the Director when he was in his residence in Switzerland, waiting for the court decision. The author of the film uses home Polanski's arrest as an excuse to turn the story of his life in kinometry.
Polanski makes a great excursion into the darkest episodes of his life: childhood in Nazi-occupied Poland and the murder of his wife Sharon Tate. And although these facts are well known (childhood memories is strongly influenced by "the Pianist", and the case of the murder of Sharon Tate was widely covered by the press), we first hear from the lips of the Director himself as it was. Obviously, these moments had a profound impact on him and his movies.
