If you’re following me on Snapchat (miss.getaway) you might know that I’m absolutely obsessed with Netflix. And because I already told you about some of my fav netflix shows, it’s about time that I talk about my favourite netflix documentaries on here. Truth is, I do love me a good documentary. I just love the idea of entertainment plus education in one and don’t understand how people can find these kind of movies tedious.
5 netflix documentaries you need to watch asap
aka the life-changer. This is definitely one of the best documentaries I’ve ever seen. And it’s one of the few that actually have an impact on the way you think and act. Cowspiracy tells the story of the meat industry and how they try to cover up all their dirty work. I think this is an absolute must-see documentary for vegans and meat-lovers alike. Ever since I saw this movie I started to cut out animal products as much as possible from my diet and even my meat-loving boyfriend decided that he wanted to incorporate vegan days into his lifestyle.
I already talked about my view on feminism in »this« post. So naturally I do love documentaries and movies that deal with the representation of women and feminism. And this is exactly what Miss Representation is about. It tells the story of women in media being portrayed in a certain way and the influence this has on our society and the way young girls and women see themselves and pursue their dreams.
Exit Through The Giftshop
One thing you maybe didn’t know about me yet is that I absolutely love street art, especially Banksy. This documentary is made by Banksy himself and tells the story of street-artists, the way they work and how one guy turned it all upside down. I personally found this documentary funny, entertaining and extremely interesting to watch.
I love animals and I’ve always been against animal-parks and whales being forced to entertain humans. Blackfish tells the story of orcas being captured and trained to perform for Seaworld and other institutions like it. It teaches you about whales, how they naturally act and why we should boycott these kind of attractions. I honestly was crying my way through this movie because, to me, this is all so wrong. But please do watch this before you ever plan on going to a place like that.
Making a Murderer
Making A Murderer is probably one of the netflix documentaries that everyone knows about. It was absolutely hyped up in the media and everyone was talking about it when it came out. It’s the story about an innocent (?) man being deliberately put into prison by the police. I personally still don’t know whether he really is innocent or not. What do you think?
Have you already seen any of these documentaries? And can you recommend any others?
