Top 50 Best Documentaries Of All Time Netflix - IMDB


Last August, filmmaker Morgan Spurlock of Supersize me, led to the Current Tv show Top Best 50 Documentaries to See before You Die. As noted Mike Hale on Arts Beat blog of the New York Times, you're not speaking of the best documentaries of all time: the selection starts from 1988, the year he came out The Thin Blue Line by Errol Morris, considered the "father of modern documentary". So no Frederick Wiseman, Michael Apted and Maysles brothers.

Always stresses the choice of Hale jury sorter to include only productions list story-based or issue-based, similar to what we all know as "documentary", discarding and then, for example, experiments of Andy Warhol and Chris Marker. Enough premise, after the jump you can find the complete leaderboard.
