Netflix adds so many documentaries to their site with such frequency that it can be extremely difficult to keep up with all they have to offer — especially if you're looking for docs that are particularly eye-opening. So for anyone searching for recently added documentaries on Netflix that could only be described as mind-blowing, you're in luck, as the below list gathers together the most shocking and surprising documentaries on Netflix to have been added in the past few months.
Some of these docs are brand new, while others are a few years old, but they all have two things in common: none were a member of the Netflix library before summer started, and they're all mind-blowing in their own way. These are docs that will make you reexamine what you eat and how you live your life. They will show you cultures and peoples you didn't know existed, and tell stories about the human condition that are almost impossible to believe. One film on the list might even convince you that outer space aliens have visited the planet and had their existence covered up by the government. So prepare to open your mind and check out these 14 recently added mind-blowing docs on Netflix.
