Anyone know of documentaries/biographies of writers existing?
I recently watched one about Lovecraft, and would like to see more, particularly if any exist for Poe, De Maupassant or Baudelaire.

So, got any ideas to help me find what i desire? :)

Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

That's the only documentary about a writer that I can think of. Sorry.
