* ShownTheirWork: Although sometimes quite often TheyJustDidntCare. Expect Creator/MartinScorsese and Creator/RobertoRossellini to lean heavily on this trope at least.

** Todd Haynes' ''Film/ImNotThere'' is about Music/BobDylan's artistic career rather than his personal life, so its a film done InTheStyleOf Dylan's music and personae. An earlier version of this is Creator/PaulSchrader's ''Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters'' which is a {{Deconstruction}} of the subject's life and work.

Pick a deceased (or soon to be deceased) musician, artist or mathematician, make sure they're the sort of person the New York media could conceivably refer to as brilliant, insert a big name actor ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg or Gary Busey]]) to play the role; watch movie critics and audiences far and wide go apeshit."''
