After the viral success of Making a Murderer, one of the best documentaries on Netflix, the streaming platform has churned out dozens of documentaries and documentary series. From behind-the-scenes rock docs like Gaga Five Foot Two to true-crime deep dives like Tiger King, the amount of nonfiction content on Netflix is seismic.
Netflix is also home to important non-original documentaries that stand the test of time, like Paris Is Burning. (Don’t know what that is? Watch it on Netflix!) Besides, you’re probably growing tired of watching the same Gilmore Girls episodes anyway.
Below is a non-exhaustive list of the best documentaries on Netflix. Enjoy.
