We've all done it. Judged a Netflix film by it's cover. I do it, I admit to pre-judging films based on their descriptions and Netflix rating. Most often however, my viewing experience does not correlate with how a film is starred or presented in those given one or two sentences. To add, a lot of really great selections are buried and pop up only as scrolling suggestions under "more like this."
Alas, I am here to save you all. I am obsessed with documentaries and I have seen a lot of the films available on Netflix. Below is a list of what I think are must see documentaries, as of January 2015.
I have not provided any descriptions because I want you to just jump right in and learn something new, no pre-judgement! There is also no real order to the listing, but that my favorites are skewed to fall near the top. I will continue to update this list so be sure to check back!
Let me know about your favorite documentaries that didn't make the list in the comment box and I will be sure to screen them, add them to the list and tag you! Use the hashtag, #TheCL, if you comment about a film on social media after viewing.
Hopefully it is a rainy Saturday! Snuggle up and ready yourself for a 12+ hour binge of some really great films.
