INCENTIVE
Documentary Film is a broad category of visual expression that is based on the attempt, in one fashion or another, to document reality. Knowledge comes in different ways through our five senses. Hearing, watching, touching, smelling and tasting are the only doorways to the outer world. The wise men say that if something is not truly experienced with all our five senses, the experience will be partial, not total. Therefore in a way almost all our gained knowledge through life is partial. And maybe they are right.
If we follow that analogy, gaining knowledge through several senses simultaneously is better than through just one. So, educating through watching educational videos, in this case documentaries, is really a total different experience than educating only on books. Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to undermine the books in any way. Having said that, lets go and check out some great documentaries right here, right now. You can browse all documentaries, or check out the complete documentary list. Also you can always browse documentaries by categories from the sidebar if you feel like.

ESSENCE
We always have to keep in mind that a Documentary, after all, can tell lies and it can tell lies because it lays claim to a form of veracity which fiction doesn’t. Some of the documentaries are made just to discredit some particular person, party, organization, system etc, but most of them here on TDF are non biased, without prejudice and worth watching.
Overall at Top Documentary Films you can find thousands of stunning, eye-opening and interesting documentaries. Choose one that suits your interest through navigation system of TDF, watch it, and tell us how it was through comments.
