Here is our top 10 Documentary Movies recommendation. These are currently available on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and so on. Documentaries are real-life incidents. Somehow we find some things related in these movies or the same thought pattern with the characters.

1. David Attenborough: A Life on Our Planet (2020): 9

Documentary Movie

A broadcaster recounts his life, and the evolutionary history of life on Earth, to grieve the loss of wild places and offer a vision for the future. In his 93 years, Attenborough has visited every continent on the globe, exploring the wild places of the planet and documenting the living world in all its variety and wonder. 

2. Samsara (2011): 8.5

Documentary Movie

This documentary is about music, exploring the Himalayas, the American Southwest, European cathedrals, and other beautiful sites. This is a heavy cerebral film that guides you through contemplation about the world we live in and more. I find great value in this work and can compare it to little else. If you are looking for a source to spark contemplation this is a great film to watch.

3. Won’t You Be My Neighbor? (2018): 8.4

Documentary Movie

It is an American documentary film about the life and guiding philosophy of Fred Rogers, the host, and creator of Mister Rogers Neighborhood. Mr. Rogers was an amazing man that we all should strive to be like and this movie just reminded me to work harder at that!!

4. Seaspiracy (2021): 8.2

Documentary Movie

It is a documentary film about the environmental impact of fishing. The film examines various human impacts on marine life and advocates for ending fish consumption. I believe its a must-watch film. Many scientists say that by 2050 we are at risk of having no more fish in our waters for many different reasons that are fishing and warming up oceans, etc.

5. Apollo 11 (2019): 8.2

Documentary Movie

It is a documentary about the Apollo 11 mission to land on the moon led by commander Neil Armstrong and pilots Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins. This is probably the best historic documentary.

6. I Am Not Your Negro (2016): 7.9

In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, Remember This House. The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and assassinations of three of his close friends: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwins death in 1987, he left behind only 30 completed pages of this manuscript. Filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished.

7. The Game Changers (2018): 7.9

The Game Changers is a 2018 documentary film that promotes a plant-based diet. James Wilks travels the world on a quest for the truth about meat, protein, and strength. The film has made me reconsider my views about the food we intake (meat, dairy, etc).

8. Crip Camp (2020):7.7

This documentary tells the true story of how a summer camp for teenagers with physical and mental disabilities laid the groundwork for a civil rights victory.

9. The Social Dilemma (2020): 7.6

If you dont pay for the product then you are the product is the most eye-opening line of the documentary. This will literally make you question your life, choices, opinions. Especially for people whove always been under social media influence.

10. Athlete A (2020): 7.6

It is a true story documentary film. The case of Larry Nassar, the former USA Gymnastics team doctor who was accused of sexually abusing at least 250 girls over his decades-long career, exposed one of the largest sexual abuse scandals in U.S. sports history.
