The Fear of God: 25 Years of The Exorcist (1998/2019, dir. Nick Freand Jones & Mark Kermode)

The restored festival-circuit cut of this authoritative making-of documentary. An object lesson in how to do this kind of thing. While reliant on interviews, the scope of the investigation of The Exorcist‘s production, release, legacy and UK censorship issues – including excised footage from the film – means that the approach used here remains influential. Recommended.

Elstree 1976 (2015, dir. Jon Spira)

Supporting actors and extras reminisce about working on Star Wars, and the impact that the film and its fan culture has had on their lives. A bittersweet little documentary which makes a minor though not-uninteresting contribution to the movie’s fandom.
