Netflix is one of the best sources for fascinating documentaries, but filmmakerEugene Jarecki’s devastating and enraging The House I Live In should be towards the very top of your queue. The film is an intimate chronicle of our country’s war on drugs, delving into the origins of the movement and the effects mandatory minimums have had on our population. It’s not a film about politics; it’s a film about humanity, and The Wire creator David Simon appears frequently to break down these issues in the most concise and damning manner possible. – Adam Chitwood
