Netflix has many great documentaries that cover various subjects, from true crime to sports to even filmmaking. Besides, fun documentaries are a great way to bring awareness to a broader audience and inspire and inform people.

Below, we’ve assembled a list of what we believe are the best documentaries on Netflix.

1. The Girl In The Picture 

The Girl in the Picture is the latest true crime documentary from Netflix. It’s up there with its absolute best work. It feels like, after a period of needlessly bloated multi-episode documentaries, Netflix has started trimming the fat, rereleasing lean, incredibly compelling documentaries. First Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey and Our Father, now this.

Watch the trailer:

The Girl in the Picture tells the story of a young girl, murdered, aged 20. To say too much would spoil the impact, but this is a layered, brutal documentary with endless twists. It needs to be seen to be believed.

2. Our Father 

As good as Netflix documentaries are, there’s been a tendency to drag true crime into these bloated multi-episode series. Thankfully Our Father is the opposite of that. It’s a lean, perfectly executed documentary focused on Donald Cline, an Indiana fertility Doctor who used his sperm to inseminate a ridiculous amount of women against their will. This is an incredible piece. One of those stories that escalate and escalates to the point where you’re jaw is dropping in disbelief.
