This isn't intended to be a comprehensive list. I'm just going to be periodically updating this list with titles from the following IMDB search parameters:
This is it. The end of the lists. Finally! So the other day I posted the best documentaries of the decade as selected by a group of acclaimed documentary filmmakers. Now, we’ve got The Documentary Blog’s own top 50 docs of the decade. I was originally aiming for 25 but I just couldn’t cut it down, so 50 will have to do. Let me stress that this list represents my own personal opinion and nothing more. Hopefully some people can use this as a starting point to check out some great films. Feel free to share your own lists in the comments and let me know what I missed! One thing’s for sure; it has been a great decade for documentaries!"

This year's Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner (U.S. Documentary) "The Wolfpack" tells a story that's almost too strange to believe: It centers on six teen brothers whose father forced them to spend their entire childhoods locked away from the outside world. With the film opening Friday, here are 16 other unbelievable documentaries.
