Citizen Kane (1941)
The film depicts the life of Jack Reed through the eyes of Louise Bryant, much as Kane's life is seen through the eyes of Thompson and the people who he interviews. Also the romantic montage between Reed and Bryant mirrors the breakfast table montage.

Interstellar (2014)
Warren Beatty's epic about the Russian Revolution combined interviews with real-life witnesses and drama. "Interstellar" uses at the beginning a similar technique and aesthetic, but with the exception of Ellen Burstyn's character, the interview footage in "Interstellar" is taken from the Ken Burns documentary "The Dust Bowl"(2012). Director Christopher Nolan himself named "Reds" as the inspiration.
