Hi Michael,

also Allen's "Husbands and Wives" might be interesting in the context  
as it's about making a documentary and thefilmmaker in the editing  
room are featured. Also Annie Hall has the protagonist "recover" after  
seeing a Marx Bros pic with his niece and realizing that life should  
not be taken too seriously. Pretty much any Allen movie has allusions  
to and movie watching in it...
