50 Great Docs

I love documentaries, especially the quirky, indie, offbeat ones you don’t hear about. Here’s a nice selection of 50 good ones available now on Netflix streaming.

The 50 Best Documentaries on Netflix (2017)

Here, we’ll point it out before you can: The best documentarieson Netflix are mostly assembled from movies released after 2000. Whether due to licensing fees, a lack of interest or both, Netflix continues to substantially scale back on its pre-Y2K catalog, featuring only 25 documentaries from before the turn of the Millennium, and a whopping six docs to be released before 1990.
