Just watched an interesting documentary on Frank Lloyd Wright and have one on Le Corbusier lined up. Can anyone recommend me some other good ones?

A new film , 'How Heavy is Your building, Mr Foster?' (Dejan Sudic (sic)) has just got a limited release in UK. I imagine it will be on DVD soon. From a couple of interviews it sounds interesting.
Also, Sketches of Frank Gehry is OK.

I also enjoyed "Objectified" and "Helvetica" by Gary Hustwit. Even though they are not really movies about architecture, they sort of fall into the larger creative corner. He's also shooting a new movie on city planning and design called "Urbanized".
