Saw the opening of Indie Game - the Movie over at IFC with K. Basically the filmmakers embedded themselves in the development of Super Meat Boy and Fez, and there was also some interview footage with Jonathan Blow ("Braid"). One thing that really came across (and I found it rather comforting) was how much even the people who are widely understood to be at the absolute top of their field are still completely capable of being all but consumed by anxiety about their past, present, and future work. I think they did a great job of painting a very human picture of the developers.
