We all procrastinate on watching documentaries and understandably so. If you’re coming home from work, why risk frying your brain with two hours of Indonesian ethnic cleansing when you can watch teenagers fall in love and wonder what’s going to happen to their relationship after high school? That said, documentaries are not always on ethnic cleansing and we’re not always tired after work. So when in the mood for one, the next obstacle becomes finding something worthy of your time on Netflix. This is proving harder and harder with all the new crappy movies and countless pseudo intellectual design shows they keep putting out into the world. This list is your guide to the true best documentary movies on Netflix right now. It is ranked by staff rating, what we call “vouch percentage”. Like all suggestions on agoodmovietowatch.com, it only has highly-rated titles. Now, there is no real excuse to not watch documentaries (except for coming home from work of course).
