Documentary Watchlist

All documentaries from my watchlist are on here, but not all films on here are on my watchlist.

Lots of emphasis on social justice (broadly defined) and filmmaking documentaries, but really a list of anything that caught my eye. Science is underrepresented compared to my interest, and I'd like suggestions in that area (especially psychology and neuroscience).
