Documentaries they can often make us wish they had a sequel, but unfortunately they don’t, most of the time. But this is exactly what the producers behind the narratives want and know the perfect moment to close and leave the audience with a taste of “I want more”.
Faced with the great evolutions, today there is no longer the need for eight hours to be able to tell a true fact, because things have really become more practical. However, some documentaries are of a much higher quality than expected, to the point of being included in the list of the best of the year.
And for that reason, we brought you a list of the best documentaries of the year, which are available on Netflix.
