11 alarming documentaries you should watch on Netflix
Finding something great to watch on Netflix can be one of life's biggest first world problems (I can't tell you how many hours I've spent going through every corner Netflix has to offer).
I've just about seen it all, so I figured I'd share some of the best documentaries Netflix has to offer.
Here are 11 of Netflix's most captivating docs:
"The House I live In"
"From the dealer to the narcotics officer, the inmate to the federal judge, a penetrating look inside America's criminal justice system, revealing the profound human rights implications of U.S. drug policy."
"An examination of the lives, needs, troubles and hopes of prostitutes in Thailand, Bangladesh and Mexico."
"Nick Broomfield's second documentary on Aileen Carol Wuornos, a highway prostitute who was executed in 2002 for killing seven men in the state of Florida. This second installment includes the filmmaker's testimony at Wournous's trial."
"National Geographic explores solitary confinement and the devastating psychological effects of isolation. Some say that the practice helps to control unruly prisoners while others argue that it is tantamount to torture."
"For The Bible Tells Me So"
"An exploration of the intersection between religion and homosexuality in the U.S. and how the religious right has used its interpretation of the Bible to stigmatize the gay community."
"Enron: The Smartest Guys In The Room"
"A documentary about the Enron corporation, its faulty and corrupt business practices, and how they led to its fall."
"The Act of Killing"
"A documentary which challenges former Indonesian death-squad leaders to reenact their mass-killings in whichever cinematic genres they wish, including classic Hollywood crime scenarios and lavish musical numbers."
"Wal-mart: The High Cost of Low Price"
"A look at the impact of the retail giant on local communities."
"A documentary on the Jejune Institute, a mind-bending San Francisco phenomenon where 10,000 people became "inducted" without ever quite realizing what they'd signed up for."
"A film profiling the unusual cross-demographic fandom of the ostensibly girl oriented television series, My Little Pony: "
"A film following the lives of two inner-city Chicago boys who struggle to become college basketball players on the road to going professional."
