Today in Xataka we will make a short tour of what we consider the 21 best documentaries that we can currently find on Netflix.

best documentaries that can be seen on Netflix

‘Audrie & Daisy’

A heartbreaking tale, produced by Netflix, focused on cyberbullying . In ‘Audrie & Daisy’ we are told the story of two teenagers who suffered abuse and harassment via the internet , which ultimately ended in sexual assaults. The documentary seeks to emphasize social networks as a harmful element and the lack of laws capable of helping those who suffer this type of harassment.

What begins as the creepy murder of a litter of cats becomes, thanks to the intervention of amateur internet researchers, a race against the clock to unmask a dangerous killer. Undoubtedly, the most unusual true-crime documentary of recent times, but also a poisoned look at what the internet does with our perceptions.

‘Casting JonBenet’

A unique and creepy documentary about the murder of a girl star of beauty pageants, just when a dramatization of her tragedy with amateur actors is being prepared in her hometown. The documentary is not only a wonderful metafiction exercise with the game of mirrors that it proposes, but also an acid look at the harsh world of contests for children.

‘The Alcàsser case’

The most media criminal case in the history of Spain receives an exhaustive analysis in this serial documentary on Netflix, splendidly documented and in which many of those involved in the crime that paralyzed Spain have a voice . Unpublished archive images and new conclusions for a documentary that unleashed a renewed conspiracy wave on the mystery behind the deaths.


Although you are not in the least interested in the world of sports animation, this docuserie that follows the adventures of the competitive cheerleading team at Navarro College is one that maintains the excitement as the final of a soccer world cup. Stunts, very handsome and athletic boys and girls doing and feeling very youthful things, and color and spirit of improvement to stop a train.


According to ‘Cowspiracy’, livestock farming is today the most destructive industry facing our planet. This documentary tries to bring to the table the consequences of this industry, which range from water scarcity to global warming. To these disasters, the production adds an investigation about the public policies that allow this type of activity.

‘Digging up Sad Hill’

A Spanish documentary brimming with nostalgia and cinephilia: a group of friends decide to locate and restore the old Burgos cemetery where the spectacular final climax of ‘The Good, the Ugly and the Bad’ was filmed. A vindication of mythomania and classic cinema to see with the poncho, the revolver and the soundtrack of Ennio Morricone very close.

‘In a nutshell’

The essential news and outreach website Vox (nothing to do with the political party) produces, in line with its extraordinary videos for the internet, a series of documentaries on the most disparate topics: diamonds, sects, epidemics, pirates, millionaires … all in pieces of a duration of around twenty minutes, delicious visually and rigorous in their exposition and points of view. A documentary gem.
