Top 10 Not Well Known Documentaries

TopTenz has a list of 10 unknown documentaries that is worth a look. As it happens I had added their #1 documentary, F is for Fake, to my Netflix queue just one day prior to finding this list. Here's their description of the film:
Orson Welles is, of course, one of the most talented filmmakers to ever pick up a camera. Not to mention he’s a consummate liar. So when a self-admitted liar makes a documentary about a dissembling art forger, who himself is being profiled by a man who would later be revealed to be a hoaxster…you have a documentary less about the subject and more about the fakery behind talking about a subject. And it’s every bit as fascinating as you might think.
