Must-See Music Movies

Open to feedback! Here's my first cut at the most important music-related movies of all time. Includes both fictional, documentaries and musicals, but for each of them music is the focus, they're not just movies with cool music - that could be another list... :-)
Tell me which ones hit the target, and where I missed completely.
