Any documentaries on Netflix that you recommend?

I have been on a documentary kick this past week. So far I have watched I Am, Blackfish, and Fat Sick and Nearly Dead.

What documentary do you recommend on Netflix?

  • Here are a few I can recommend but they are pretty powerful. I'm honestly not sure if they're on Netflix but you can check it out

    1. My Flesh and Blood
    2. Silverlake Life: A View from Here
    3. Brother's Keeper (it's older but very compelling)

  • Just reading the question title I was going to recommend Blackfish. I don't watch too many doc's. Super Size Me is kind of old, but its terrifying!

  • I don't know why but I really got into Alaska: The Last Frontier. It kinda has a reality show likeness but no crazy drama lol.

    Serving Life is good, but pretty hard to watch.

    The Human Family Tree kinda blew my mind. Really makes you think.

    Craiglist Joe is pretty interesting.

  • It's pretty lighthearted compared to the recommendations you've gotten, and it was a movie and not a documentary, but then you might need something light after watching all that heavy stuff. Try March of the Penguins.

  • Super Size Me is kind of old, but its terrifying!

    It's also based on faked data, so it's not quite as scary as was once thought.

    I don't have Netflix anymore to see if these are still available, but if they are:
    The Imposter
    Jesus Camp
    Bully (make sure you have lots of kleenex and something nearby you can safely punch repeatedly - you'll name that "principal" )

  • I recently watched the Spike Lee, Mike Tyson documentary, this is in no way for kids, but I really found out alot I had no idea about. Made me actually kind of like him.
