Best Documentaries of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Sicko Sicko

Excellent topic, good film making, genuine dilemma and truth has been exposed in this documentary. Daring and bold attempt by Michael Moore.

Funny and educational. Michael. Moor is a genius

2 Super Size Me Super Size Me

It really opens the eyes of the viewer."

I would vote for this, but it sucks when you realize that this documentary was highly faked due to and other sources... - CreepyPastaT10

3 Truth Or Dare? Truth Or Dare?
4 Bowling For Columbine Bowling For Columbine

Marilyn Manson isn't a bad person, but he's blamed for so much. He doesn't deserve all the hate he gets. And despite his music, he's very nice and very smart, and his music does have meaning. It's just misunderstood. Personally, I love Marilyn Manson. I have a lot of respect for him.

This represented Marilyn Manson the way he should be. He didn't do anything, and in the end they even found out that the killers didn't even like him.

5 Roger & Me Roger & Me
6 Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmakers Apocalypse Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmakers Apocalypse

One of totally the best documentaries of all time, but unfortunately list is missing some essentials. I wouldn't focus on Michael Moore personally. He is good but how to say it, maybe pretentious a bit.

7 The Thin Blue Line The Thin Blue Line
8 Harlan County USA Harlan County USA
9 Dont Look Back Dont Look Back
10 Indie Game: The Movie Indie Game: The Movie

The Contenders

11 Metal - A Headbanger's Journey Metal - A Headbanger's Journey

By far the best music documentary ever. IT IS AWESOME! - Andrevalenca

12 Salesman Salesman
13 Walking with Dinosaurs Walking with Dinosaurs

I loved this series as a kid and still do! It needs to be put back on the air! It was astounding!

I've seen 70 of these films but I'm sure that this one is the best. - logblobo

17 The Cove The Cove
18 In God We Trust? In God We Trust?
19 Capturing the Friedmans Capturing the Friedmans

This family goes through every imaginable emotion, leaving none aforementioned.
How a well-to-do american family can be destroyed by lies for the justice system of America. Nobody is safe!
