There is an interesting article I am still trying to track down
detailing and contrasting the diary vs. essay film. I can't remember
where I read it.

In addition to all the great suggestions by others:

Joe Gibbons "Confessions of a Sociopath"
Robb Moss "The Tourist"
David Holzman Diaries
Philip Hoffman's some of his work
Abraham Ravett
Lynne Sachs
James Bennings "North on Evers"
"History and Memory" Tajiiri
"Hungarian Passport"
"Kelly Loves Tony" Spencer Nakasako
