Netflix selection 20190728

Netflix selection 20190728

I regularly browse Netflix in search of content that I might watch, one day.

My preference goes for documentaries. These days, I loathe most fiction, including “Strangers Things” and “Black Mirror”, which I once adored, but that now fail to capture my aw, due to lack of originality, lack of credibility, vulgar acting, etc.

I am convinced that most, if not all, of the following documentaries will be time well invested into learning history, having contact with alternative perspectives, and/or knowing formidable people.

At the end the post, there is a sequence of snapshots taken from each program’s Netflix page. Whenever possible, I have also included hyperlinks to the program’s Netflix page and to the corresponding IMDB file, but not all content is on IMDB.

“Trace the overlapping journeys of exceptional women swept up in World War I and hear their tales of bravery on history’s front lines.”
