Yeah, I know what is sought, what the term is supposed to bring to mind. For that I would recommend my own short, The Gift.

Sounds like an interesting film, but in no way would I think of it as
a diary. I see diary films as a film made by the subject about their
lives in some way, not an appropriation of the form used for fiction
(even reality-based fiction).

Then again, none of these words -- diary, documentary, non-fiction,
reality, truth -- have any meaning anymore. So being fiercely
serious about this stuff makes one seem like an old curmudgeon.

Then again, I am an old curmudgeon.
