Sadly, I don't have much time to watch as many documentaries as I want but somehow I've managed to see some of them:

The Queen of Versailles. If you haven't seen it at this point, I truly recommend watching it. It has such an "appealing"  introspect into a billionaire family, their daily routine (if there is one) and most importantly - their $100 000 000 house being built at the same time as watching their dream being completely shattered as the economy crisis hits.
Oh, Jiro. What a beautiful documentary. I will never look at sushi the same way. It's incredible to watch a person who enjoys his work as much as him. He dedicated his whole life for mastering the art of this Japanese delicacy and his restaurant rates as the best sushi restaurant in the world. 
Waiting list is "only" a month or two, price for a person is around $400, there is no menu and the experience lasts approximately 30 minutes. Would you love to go?

Another dance documentary that is well made. As you follow several ballet dancers who are fighting for the first place in one of the most exclusive competition in the ballet world, you can't help but wonder if you've seen this before. It's the same order: working hard, fatigue, tears, victory.. Yes, you've probably seen the scenario before but it's worth watching it all over again.

The Catfish. There can't be much said about it because it would ruin the experience. Let's just mention the fact it has something to do with a guy who meets an interesting family through Facebook and decides to meet them in real life. You can only imagine how this situation unfolds. Very bizarre, say at least..

What about you? Do you love watching documentaries? Have you seen anything interesting lately?
