The best documentaries on Netflix shine a light on the streaming giant's admirable devotion to nonfiction. Although the company's roster of family movies, feelgood films, comedies and more is truly outstanding, the documentaries available for streaming on the platform would, arguably, not even exist if not for Netflix.
So let's honor them.
From the very recent (Tiger King) to the obviously popular (Miss Americana), from the political (Knock Down the House) to the musical (History of the Eagles), we hereby cover the very best documentaries on Netflix right now. Get comfortable and turn on your mind. Happy viewing (and learning).
