Watch This: Fascinating Documentaries


Hello again my fellow movie lovers! I thought that today I would feed your mind with some fantastic documentaries that you can watch on Netflix right now.

Casting By Have you ever wondered how the actors are chosen to be in a movie? As someone who loves movies as much as I do, and has worked in the entertainment industry, I find the casting process to be quite interesting. Casting By takes a look at how casting directors have shaped Hollywood over the last 50 years. Through interview with Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen and several more heavy hitters, you’ll see how the movies used to be cast in the 1920s and how the process has evolved.

Fed Up Narrated by Katie Couric, this documentary takes you on an investigative journey into the American food industry and how it might be the reason more health issues than anyone had previously realized.

The Paw Project I’m a bonafide animal lover, especially when it comes to cats. I’m a total cat person and I think they are the cutest things ever! The Paw Project is about veterinarian, Jennifer Conrad, and her fight to protect the rights of felines. Jennifer Conrad brought to light the devastating effects of de-clawing to several city councils in the state of California. I had no idea the horrible effects de-clawing a cat could do! It was an eye-opening documentary.

Alive Inside: A Story of Music and Memory This is a heart wrenching film about the amazing connection between people and music. Social worker Dan Cohen is an advocate for musical therapy with patients that suffer from dementia. Cohen shows you the ability that music has to fight memory loss and “restore a deep sense of self” to dementia patients.

Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead At 310 pounds, Joe Cross is suffering from obesity and a debilitating autoimmune disease. This is an inspiring documentary that follows Joe on a health journey to turn his fate around. For 60 days Joe ditches the processed junk food for a fruit and vegetable cleanse! Along the way Joe meets Phil - a man at 429 pounds that is in daily pain from obesity. This is an inspiring film about two men from two different worlds who realize that the only people that can save their lives are themselves.
