"Paddle to the Sea" (1966) Directed by Bill Mason. The is a lovely short film from the National Film Board of Canada that tells the story of a young boy's wooden carving that tries to make its way across Western Ontario to the sea.

"The Killing" (1956) Directed by Stanley Kubrick, with Sterling Hayden and Coleen Gray. If you like caper films, this is one of the very best and it has a lot of fine actors to tell this story about a race track robbery.

"Hearts of Darkness" Directed by Fax Bahr and George Hickenlooper, with Francis Ford Coppola and Martin Sheen. This is an absolutely fascinating documentary about the troubled production of "Apocalypse Now" which almost drove director Francis Ford Coppola insane.
