Those of you who enjoy unusual subjects and different perspectives will surely find our list of 15 best Vice documentaries on YouTube quite pleasing.
You have to admire the people behind Vice. They have created one huge media machine that has its fingers in almost everything. The company deals in film production, book publishing, and even has a music label. Maybe the most notable part of the company remains Vice Magazine that is still available in the physical form. Vice is known to deal with topics other media doesn’t give much attention to or doesn’t cover it the right way. Also, the topics are usually aimed toward a younger population and presented by a younger generation of journalists and writers.
Now, I know that there are many people who don’t like the style of Vice, and I don’t blame them. Let’s take articles featured on Vice’s website, for example. They can be sometimes unprofessional, unnecessary controversial, and unserious to be considered as a solid source of information or even a pleasant read. I understand how an article titled “I Made an ‘Exact’ Replica of My Dick from the Comfort of My Own Home” can be appealing to someone, but that sounds just to click bait to me. On the other hand, Vice News and their Vice documentaries are something refreshing. Documentaries made by Vice will surely keep your attention. They may not be as long as full feature documentaries you are accustomed to, but it doesn’t make them any less valuable. The subjects of the documentaries are always done objectively, the research is thorough and the approach is professional. If you ask me, those are the things that make a good documentary. For those of you still determined to watch a documentary that has a longer running time, why don’t try out with some from our list of the 11 Best Science Documentaries on Youtube.
