The greatest a-holes to ever strut in front of a documentary film maker's camera?

I recently watched two great documentaries - Overnight
and The King of Kong
, both made awesome by the utter lack of self awareness of their subjects (Troy Duffy
and Billy Mitchell
) and the pure preening, arrogant asshole behaviour which repulsed and amused me in equal measure. What documentary films capture - without acting or other shenanigans - real self-important, cringeworthy assholes baring themselves on screen? If they face a downfall, great. If they get their comeuppance, even better.
