The best music documentaries.
With the isolation restrictions, Netflix traffic is through the roof. Even if you’ve seen the Tiger King twice, watched every Fast ‘n Furious, and gone all the way back to the beginning of Star Trek… some of us are now finding; there’s only so much Netflix to watch. And let’s face it, quite a bit of it is trash.
So, with many people sharing on Facebook lists of their favourite albums, movies, comedians etc – we thought, let’s jump on the bandwagon and spread the word with some incredibly good music documentaries. Hours and hours of amazing escapism here. Enjoy.
