What is your favorite documentary of all time? (and can it be streamed now on one of the popular streaming services?)

--just looking for interesting things to watch. Thanks in advance.

So much to choose from and no idea about streaming options, I'll throw out Terry Zwigoff's "Crumb".

Hovers between documentary and fiction - but I really like Fatman and Littleboy; about the making of the first atomic bomb.

I also have a couple of DVDs distributed by Y12 weapons plant in Oak Ridge that provide the history of Oak Ridge and uranium enrichment/bomb making.

I also love the cable show "classic album" where they take some great album and walk thru the recording and tracks and little know facts.

I saw it and might still have he DVD. Bob Crumb was weird. Still alive, too.

Bitter Lake by British documentarian Adam Curtis. He's produced several documentaries and they're all fascinating.

Century of the Self

HyperNormalisation

I would also recommend all of Werner Herzog's docs. You can probably find most if not all of them on either YouTube or Netflix.
