If Your Resolution Is to Watch More Documentaries, Netflix in January Has You Covered

If you're not down with New Year's resolutions for 2021, we couldn't understand more. But here's an easy one: watch more documentaries, made even easier by Netflix. The streaming giant is unloading tons of new films to do you an education next month, starting with "Headspace Guide to Meditation," which is hosted by an actual former Buddhist monk, Andy Puddicombe, who also co-founded the Headspace meditation app. Also keep an eye out for "History of Swear Words," where Nicolas Cage goes through the origins of all our favorite naughty syntax, and "CRACK: Cocaine, Corruption & Conspiracy," an in-depth look at drug war of the 1980s by award-winning filmmaker Stanley Nelson. Besides that, there's a doc for everyone: "Tony Parker: The Final Shot" for sports fanatics, "Pretend It’s a City" for NYC homebodies, "The Minimalists: Less Is Now" for Marie Kondo extraordinaires and "Night Stalker: The Hunt for a Serial Killer" for true crime junkies.
