I recommend Diary of a Corpse, a documentary on what happens when you die. Specifically, all the fun parts of decomposing.

Dear Mr. Watterson is actually a pretty terrible documentary despite being about something I love. Bill Watterson isn't even in the film, it's just a bunch of nobodies talking about how much they love him. No new information, no real insight, pretty much nothing worth watching unless you're a fan and want to hear a bunch of people agree with you.

I can not even write about how amazing Jiro Dreams of Sushi is. Imagine looking at one task and deciding that you will become the best in the world at it. Then you spend the next 70 years practicing, refining, and focusing on that task. The man does not even say Sushi is his job, he says it is his passion.

By "bunch of nobodies" you mean fellow comic artists, Seth Green and other folks Bill Waterson inspired as well as people involved with him while he was penning/drawing the comic? And a documentary showing the town he drew inspiration for his whole theme from? I felt it was fairly well done considering it didn't have Bill, plus it was very respectful on account of his legendary reclusive nature.

Ok, I am a die hard Calvin & Hobbes fan but I have to see 'Dear Mr. Watterson' is not worth the watch // This not that great a documentary, there is one or two nice looks into the works of Bill Watterson but aside from that is not really worth your time // 'Stripped' on the other name is // It's a documentary about comics in general, from their early history to modern web-comics & even includes a letter from Bill Watterson, plus is more enjoyable to watch than 'Dear Mr. Watterson'

Honorable mention to Bones Brigade. Warm fuzzy 80s skater memories.

"When I am making Sushi, I am victorious."

It's heart-crushingly good and an absolute inspiration to anyone doing something creative.
