Top 10 documentaries streaming on Netflix

By Joy Perrone,

Streaming giant Netflix boasts a mind-blowing 44 million subscribers to their service and has a diverse menu of television and film dramas to prove it.

Aside from having award-winning original shows like House of Cards available for viewing, Netflix also offers a wide variety of interesting documentaries to stream. Many people cringe when they hear the word “documentary,” fully expecting to sit through a mind-numbingly dull video on a topic they care nothing about. However, these aren’t the boring, uninspired documentaries you were forced to watch in high school. These films have been critically hailed as completely awesome and have won awards at the Cannes film festival and the Academy Awards. They’ll make you laugh, they’ll make you cry, and who knows? You might just learn something new in the process.

Instead of clicking “next episode” on fluffy television shows like Gossip Girl or Say Yes To The Dress, give the often-overlooked Documentaries section a try. You won’t regret it!
