The 10 Best Documentaries on Netflix

Unlike narrative films, documentaries have the power to legitimately illuminate a subject in a straightforward way, to give us an informed opinion on something we may not have ever considered before. With hundreds of titles available, Netflix is one of the biggest depositories of documentaries around, with some of the most important titles of the last decade available with a single click.

We scoured the service for what we considered to be the best documentaries on Netflix in all manner of subject, be it true crime, movies, video games, music, comedy, food or general human interest. Take a look at the gallery below for ten most outstanding documentaries on the streaming service.
