There’s something really captivating about watching a true story play out in front of you. Unlike a fictional narrative, documentaries don’t have neatly tied-up endings, there is no guarantee of what’s to come. In summation: they feel like a more accurate representation of what the world is capable of, good and evil, nurturing and abandoning. Often a documentary provides a way to dive deep into a story that hasn’t been fully explored previously, maybe even to get answers to long-existing questions once and for all.
As Amazon continues to compete with Netflix to provide a captivating slew of offerings for its viewers, it’s growing documentary selection reflects that. Here we present some of the best documentaries on Amazon Prime, with options for all interest groups from the typical true crime to the exploration of a long-forgotten band to girl power.
