Poll: Movies About Movies

Technically, these movies are about more than just movies. Cinema. Stories. Media. Whatever you wanna call it. We create narratives, hold them in our head, and share them with others. From where I'm sitting, this seems to be what distinguishes humans from other animals. And it's what I love more than anything in the world.

These ten films tell all kinds of stories about telling stories. - Joseph Gordon-Levitt
