Can't believe no one mentioned "Modulations":

10 years old now but still interesting to watch. The Flaming Lips documentary is very good as well:

+1 DiG! and No Direction Home.

I found this one extremely inspiring, highlighting the career of a true unsung hero.

Tom Dowd & the Language of Music

This is what I really admire; a man who doesn't shout what he's about, but a man with such gifts . . .

If it has not already been mentioned I would highly recommend August Rush.
I found it a truly inspiring film about music. Check it out, you won't regret it.

This documentary on the MC5 probably has to be ordered. Best documentary on a rock band I've ever seen, real life Spinal Tap Moments, and inspiring parts too.

Hip-Hop - Beyond Beats And Rhymes

Looks at homophobia and sexism in modern American hip-hop culture.

Anyone have any more that are on YouTube or Google Video, and worth watching?
