I haven’t seen a lot of documentaries, but I have seen some good ones. I’m including both movie documentaries and TV documentaries in this list.

Best of the best

  • The Battle Over Citizen Kane
  • Bowling for Columbine
  • Capitalism: A Love Story
  • The Corporation
  • Dangerous Days: Making Blade Runner
  • Fahrenheit 9/11
  • The Fog of War
  • Guns, Germs and Steel
  • An Inconvenient Truth
  • Lost in La Mancha
  • Roger & Me
  • Walking with Cavemen
  • Walking with Dinosaurs
  • Walking with Prehistoric Beasts

Runner ups

Honourable mention

Seeing-the-World-in-a-New-Way Movies

These films are sometimes lumped in with documentaries, but they are quite different. They have no dialogue or story — it’s all about following the visuals as they show you the world in a way you’ve never seen it before.

Best of the best

  • Baraka
  • Koyaanisqatsi
  • Powaqqatsi

Runner up

Honourable mention

  • Naqoyqatsi

Stand-up Comedy Movies

Again, these are sometimes lumped in with documentaries but are clearly different.

The only one I’ve seen lately
