Fictional films depicting film world and the processes and the consequences of making films. I've excluded all the metaphorical films (Funny Games, etc.) and biographies which focus on the main character rather than the aspect of making movies.

Hieno lista!
Posted: 6 years, 2 months ago at Feb 6 19:26
Also,

The Last Command (1928)
A Star is Born (both the 1937 and 1954 versions)
Center Stage (1992) - A biography yes, but the filmmaking aspect plays an equal part in the film.
The Blackout (1997)
Entropy (1999)
Ivansxtc (2000)

EDIT: and, of course, many POV films including Cannibal Holocaust, Strange Days (scifi-filmmaking though) and maybe even Blair Witch Project, [REC] and Cloverfield, although the last three are not really about filmmaking itself so those propably don't count.
Posted: 6 years, 2 months ago at Feb 6 19:37
I haven't seen Cannibal Holocaust and considered it but wasn't really sure is it really enough _about_ making a film even though the characters are making a film... but your suggestion confirms it and it will be added.

Edit. And yes, just being a POV film is not a merit enough. Instead I've added them on my mockumentary list.
Posted: 6 years, 2 months ago at Feb 6 19:47
Yeah, Cannibal Holocaust definitely belongs in this list. The rest I edited there I'm not so sure of. You decide.

Burden of Dreams is not a fictional film.

State and Main was already on my list but I'll do anything is a good addition. Thanks Mihai.
Posted: 6 years ago at Apr 21 23:58
awesome list but you forgot American Movie
Posted: 6 years ago at Apr 22 4:10
American Movie is a documentary. This list is for clearly fictional films. Read the description!
Posted: 6 years ago at Apr 22 8:51
Woody Allen's Hollywood Ending http://www.listal.com/movie/hollywood-ending-2002 is so obvious a choice that it must have been forgotten.
Posted: 6 years ago at Apr 22 9:24
The Truman Show?
Posted: 6 years ago at Apr 22 13:41
The Truman Show is about television, not cinéma. Hollywood Ending was forgotten, I only remembered the other Allen flick. Thanks.

great list
Posted: 5 years, 5 months ago at Dec 4 19:00
Nice work.
Maybe tou can add Finishing the Game
Posted: 5 years, 2 months ago at Feb 22 17:31
I would suggest Zulawski's That Most Important Thing: Love.
Posted: 4 years, 11 months ago at Jun 10 2:48
Cinema Paradiso (1988)
A serbian film (2010)
Posted: 4 years, 6 months ago at Oct 27 19:48
You forgot American Movie.
Posted: 4 years, 6 months ago at Oct 28 10:52
These are fictional films. American Movie is a documentary.
Posted: 4 years, 1 month ago at Mar 21 5:00
Ed-Wood, Blazing Saddles
Posted: 4 years, 1 month ago at Mar 21 10:18
Ed Wood is in the list. Blazing Saddles isn't _about_ making a film, although it has a scene where a film is being made.
Posted: 4 years ago at Apr 14 14:48
I just watched Kinji Fukasaku's Fall Guy and it reminded me of this list. I think it would be a good addition.
Posted: 4 years ago at Apr 22 14:48
Thank you and no problem, I don't care about the votes, as long as the list proves itself useful for someone.
Posted: 4 years ago at May 4 17:41
Okaaay, so not feeling like making a movie is not a problem connected to making movies?
Posted: 3 years, 9 months ago at Aug 7 21:18
Le Mepris (1963), definitely.

Edit: Whoops! My bad. Disregard what I've said.
Posted: 3 years, 9 months ago at Aug 7 22:25
It's in the list already. It's called Contempt in English.
Posted: 3 years, 9 months ago at Aug 7 22:49
Good job!!!!
Posted: 3 years, 9 months ago at Aug 8 0:43
Great list! I don't know if this one counts, but, A Star is Born.
Posted: 3 years, 9 months ago at Aug 8 10:32
Yes, it counts, but it's in the list already. Both versions.
Posted: 3 years, 9 months ago at Aug 8 10:42
Cannibal Holocaust doesn't have anything to do with making movies,it's about cannibals.The name says it all.
Posted: 3 years, 9 months ago at Aug 8 12:44
With that logic I think it also has something to do with the holocaust.
Posted: 2 years, 5 months ago at Nov 11 8:50
Thanks for the suggestions, CD Smiles!
