A Mighty Wind (2003)
Besides the great cast, this is a perfectly crafted mockumentary. You know it's not real - the presence of recognizable actors is enough to remind you of that - but most of the time, it feels like it is. Like you could walk into a music store and find a CD by Mitch and Mickey or the Folksmen. The songs that were written for each group are perfectly reminiscent of folk music, while at the same time delightfully tongue-in-cheek, and the song that was nominated for an Oscar ("A Kiss at the End of the Rainbow") is sweet and hilarious. Who knew Eugene Levy could sing?
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
