Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey

There are haunting similarities between what happened in Waco, Texas, in 1993 and the raid at Yearning for Zion Ranch in West Texas 15 years later in 2008. Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey is a chilling docuseries investigating another self-professed messiah, Warren Jeffs, the leader of an insidious faction of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS).

Similar to Waco: American Apocalypse, Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey includes archival footage and personal stories from several people who escaped the FLDS and now have the chance to recount the horrors they faced while living in the cult’s oppressive environment.

MH370: The Plane That Disappeared

I don’t actually think this docuseries is one of the best documentaries on Netflix. Still, it’s not the worst way to spend some time, especially if you are unfamiliar with the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370. What was supposed to be a routine flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing soon became the stuff of nightmares and countless conspiracy theories when MH370 vanished from radar screens one night in 2014.

Since then, a global search conducted across multiple countries has done little to provide the passengers’ families with concrete answers. This docuseries focuses more on conspiracy than factual evidence, but it does offer an interesting vantage point to examine the case. Plus, it’s a newer release and still one of the top docs in the Netflix Top 10 chart, so you should watch it to stay in the loop!
