Sometimes a good one sneaks in #6: Burden Of Dreams

An excellent and gripping documentary about the making of the film Fitzcarraldo, where film-maker Werner Herzog drags a 300-ton steamship over a hill in South America. For 4 years he battles illness, rapids, re-shoots, delays and star Klaus Kinski to get his film made. Check both out. Burden Of Dreams is available on Netflix Instant Streaming, Fitzcarraldo is available on DVD.
