I would like to recommend two other items to include in your list:
DIRECTORS CLOSE UP ( 2006 ) which is edited interviews on directing with the nominees for best director by the Directors Guild of America. It is an in depth investigation into all the realms of directing with contemporary masters. There is a new edition coming in 2012.
Also on line is the DGA Visual Histories which are visual and text interviews with famed directors with a detailed search engine to find specific comments about specific directing challenges:
