Now that you’ve made your way through all this year’s Oscar films, it’s time to queue up Netflix with these documentaries.

Using a bike to get around, 80 year-old Cunningham has been trolling the streets of New York for decades photographing what people are wearing and documenting it for the New York Times. The result is a beautiful and intriguing expression of trends and style over the years plus a look at the life of this quiet artist.



The CNN airing of this documentary blew up Twitter, and the raging debate over performance animals continues. Disturbing footage and heartbreaking interviews tell the story of Tilikum, a whale who has been involved in three deaths during his time in captivity.

Food documentaries are our guilty pleasure and there are many good ones out there. We especially like this one because it explores where our food is really coming from and who’s bringing it to our tables.
