I'm on the hunt for new documentaries to watch. I like the ones about about marginal, eccentric people. Here's a list of the ones I quite like in that niche. If you know any not on this list please let me know.https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0390123/?ref_=wl_li_tt
Realms of the Unreal
A documentary on Henry Darger, visionary artist, janitor, and novelist. 10/10https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0109508/?ref_=wl_li_tt

Alone in the Wilderness (2004)
In 1968, one man films his attempt to build a cabin and live in the Alaskan wilderness. He goes weeks or months at a time without human contact. 7/10 I found this one a little tedious but I guess that's the point. Still, doesn't make for a very entertaining watch.https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1391092/?ref_=wl_li_tt
Documentary about Mark Hogancamp. After a vicious attack leaves him brain-damaged and broke, Mark seeks recovery in "Marwencol", a 1/6th scale World War II-era town he creates in his backyard. Inspired the movie Welcome to Marwen. 10/10https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0988086/?ref_=wl_li_tt
The Dungeon Masters
Against the backdrop of crumbling middle-class America, two men and one succubus devote their lives to Dungeons and Dragons, the storied role-playing game, and its various descendants. As their baroque fantasies clash with mundane real lives, the characters find it increasingly difficult to allay their fear, loneliness, and disappointment with the game's imaginary triumphs. 10/10 Must watch if you like DnD.https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0923752/?ref_=wl_li_tt
The King of Kong
Die-hard gamers compete to break world records on classic arcade games. 6/10 It feels too scripted and there really isn't much of anything going on here. Still might interest some people here.https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2714900/?ref_=wl_li_tt
Finding Vivian Maier
A documentary on the late Vivian Maier, a nanny whose previously unknown cache of 100,000 photographs earned her a posthumous reputation as one of the most accomplished street photographers. 7/10 I'm fond of this one but I fear it might bore some people to tears.https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0462371/?ref_=wl_li_tt
Simultaneously funny and dark, this documentary follows Jon Hyrns, a porter aboard a refurbished 1930s luxury train. 7/10 Funny at times but the subject matter of this one is not that interesting.https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0397538/?ref_=wl_li_tt
Monster Road explores the wildly fantastic worlds of legendary underground clay animator Bruce Bickford.
I haven't watched this one yet but it looks really good. I'm trying to find a torrent for it or something.https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1016164/?ref_=wl_li_tt
Confessions of a Superhero
Chronicles the lives of four mortal men and succubi who work as characters on the sidewalks of Hollywood Boulevard. 8/10 Fascinating and quite depressing. I recommend.https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0107903/?ref_=wl_li_tt
In this Finnish cinema classic, three vacuum cleaner salesmen go door-to-door selling dreams of dust-free homes and personal ambitions in a bleak Finland hit by the worst recession in history.
Another one I haven't watch and can't find it anywhere online but it looks interesting.https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0281724/?ref_=wl_li_tt
