You know I love to share all of my recommendations when it comes to arts and entertainment. When I found Amazon Prime, I realized I had so much more choice in things I wanted to see and expand my search for true crime and life documentaries; which since I have watched countless of them. I feel like documentaries are so under rated and when we have this life we experience every day- it’s a real look into what each facet and dimension of life looks like (good and bad). I like to draw knowledge on real life stories and experience so I can be more understanding and empathetic. If you like to learn from other people’s experiences and watch life unfold in the present moments, then here is 20 documentaries that I know are MUST SEE’s.
-PINK! All I Know So Far:
An exciting view through PInk’s most recent European Tour with her kids and husband, how she makes her art, performs with her family-like crew and impacts a nation while doing it. How hard it is to be a superstar, balance kids, marriage, work and a tour as well as living regular life day by day and giving her kids amazing experiences so they grow into incredible well rounded people.
-Leaving Neverland (Micheal Jackson case):
A detailed recount of two survivors depicting the years of friendship, encouragment and attention; as well as abuse they received from Micheal Jackson in the years and decades before he passed. As well as the family and public views on the allegations and the journey to resolve the accusations.

I highly suggest if you are a documentary lover checking these out if you have Prime video or trying to find them elsewhere on other networks or renting them if possible.
