The late Roger Ebert famously called movies “empathy machines,” writing on how they allow you to experience other lives and new perspectives in a fashion that most other art forms cannot. I find this to be especially true with great documentaries, which can take subject matter that doesn’t seem like it would interest you at all and blow your mind wide open with the details of a world you would normally never think about.
Case in point: this new Netflix documentary series about professional bull riders. I didn’t know I wanted to watch a documentary series about professional bull riders, but here we are. It’s called Fearless and there’s a trailer and everything.
