A Round-Up of the Best Netflix Documentaries for a Cozy Autumn Night

Those cooler Autumn nights are the perfect excuse to cozy up with a cup of tea, fuzzy blanket, and a fascinating documentary. We've gathered up some of our favorites on Netflix at the moment, we hope you enjoy. (And please send us your #cozyautumnnight views)

Jiro Dreams of Sushi:

Absolutely mouthwatering film about the amazing 85 year old sushi master and his Michelin-star restaurant in Japan. If you want to dive into a rich family story peppered with hypnotizing food shots (honestly, everything we look for out of a Friday night documentary!) this won’t disappoint.

Paris is Burning:

We admit it, we're suckers for New York nostalgia. An amazingly fun and vibrant look into the life of 1980's drag queens in New York City. This gem of a documentary showcases the best of 80s style while also diving into the issues of race and poverty. Watch it, and then DM us to tell us what you thought.

Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry:

One of the most controversial artists of our time, Ai Weiwei's story is one that should not be missed.


A film about the "less is more" mentality is exactly what we need this time of year. Get inspired by the peace and happiness these subjects find with less. Living simply is truly living in a golden state.

Knock Down the House:

How lucky we are to have a documentary about 4 of the women who ran for Congress in 2018! An inspiring—and important—look into the journeys of these incredible female politicians.


A visually breathtaking documentary about the beauty of life and the issues we face as humanity moves further from nature.


We promise, this documentary will leave you in tears and listening to "Back to Black" for the next month. This portrait of Amy Winehouse's life is as beautiful as it is heartbreaking.

My Octopus Teacher:

Filmed in 2010, "My Octopus Teacher" chronicles the year Craig Foster spent cultivating a unique bond with an extraordinary creature. The nature documentary has received eight nominations for the Jackson Wild Media Award and won Best Feature at the EarthxFilm Festival.
