Say what you like about Netflix, it’s extremely good for one thing and that’s documentaries. I’ve been watching a lot of them recently and would love some recommendations!
I have a lot of favourites.
The Civil War by Ken Burns is a real favourite of mine. I love the style of it, the narration, the heart-breaking stories. It’s a real piece of incredible history. This is not on Netflix, but you should try and pick it up somehow.
I really enjoyed The Jinx, a super recent HBO documentary series. I don’t want to spoil it for anyone. Just watch it and watch it till its insane conclusion.
A couple of other recommendations:
-- Downloaded: a documentary by the man who played Bill in Bill and Ted’s Excellent adventure of all people. It’s about the rise of Napster. It’s top notch. -- Jiro Dreams of Sushi: difficult to describe this one. It’s about a man who makes the best sushi in the world. Obviously there’s more to it than that! Watch it. -- Fog Of War: this is nothing more than a one-on-one with Robert S. McNamara the Secretary of Defence for the US during the 60s. It’s incredible.
Okay, now for the reason why I wrote this post in the first place: give me recommendations! I want some new stuff to watch!
