Since the start of the 21st century, documentaries have increased in popularity as a form of entertainment. They cover everything from food to famous music festivals. So, when you’re ready to relax at Farmington Lakes Apartments, here are three Netflix documentaries you don’t want to miss.

They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead 

Famed director Orson Welles changed cinema forever. However, his last film, The Other Side of the Wind, was unfinished and unseen for decades. They’ll  Love Me When I’m Dead chronicles the long journey of shooting, re-shooting, and editing what would eventually become one of the most infamous movies in film history. The documentary also offers an insight into Welles’ career in the shadow of Citizen Kane.

Ugly Delicious 

Join acclaimed Chef David Chang as he leads viewers on a culinary adventure around the world. He travels with his friends to discover unique twists on classic dishes. Along the way, they uncover surprising links between cultures. During the first season, David dives deep into the barbecue, tacos, and the authentic pizza of Naples. Ugly Delicious is part documentary, part travelogue.

20 Feet From Stardom 

Winner of the 2014 Academy Award for “Best Documentary Feature,” 20 Feet From Stardom showcases the backup singers whose voices are heard on some of the most iconic songs of the 21st century. The ladies live in the shadow of legends. They lend harmony to the biggest bands in pop music but are often forgotten.

Yet, their stories are equally triumphant and heartbreaking. This documentary highlights Merry Clayton, Darlene Love, and Lisa Fischer, among other talented singers. It has gained recognition from Rolling Stone and has also won a Grammy Award for “Best Music Film.”

All in all, these Netflix documentaries provide plenty of entertainment for quiet evenings at home. If you’d like to enjoy these documentaries in comfortable surroundings, consider making Farmington Lakes Apartments your new home.
