    The Méliès Mystery

    ★★★★

    Not much actual mystery in this doc, as the first half is more focused on detailing Méliès' life through admittedly beautifully restored footage of his work, combined with an audio recording of presumably an interview with the man himself, something I very much did not know nor thought to even exist, so that was definitely neat.
