Doco watchlist

Once seen, they'll be moved to this list.

Happy to take suggestions for my watchlist. (I don't have a dedicated documentary watchlist but there are plenty on my main watchlist). I'm mostly interested in docos about:
art movements/artists
counterculture/subcultures
queer history
films/film history/etc
music (only really interested in music of the 20th century)
outsiders/weirdos

Not at all interested in true crime or sport, but I'm probably open to suggestions otherwise
