I recently asked my Facebook friends what documentary films I should watch. I had no idea they’d come back with such awesome suggestions. I don’t want to lose this amazing list, as it’s long and going to take me some time to get through it.

I always forget about documentaries because you usually only hear about the ones that get super famous, like Food, Inc. I recently watched the new Tony Robbins documentary and realized that I truly enjoy this genre of film. My friends made me want to sit down and binge watch for days when I put it out there. Therefore, I’m going to share their brilliant suggestions with you!

These are in no particular order.
