Documentaries don’t, on the whole, have a great reputation; they’re often seen as being dull and serving niche audiences.  But Hulu’s rounded up some amazing-sounding films to celebrate the launch of a new documentaries section within the site.

Let’s start with a couple of titles that’ll convince you this isn’t just a small, quirky gesture: how about Super Size Me and Buena Vista Social Club?  There’s also We Are Wizards, which, although not well-known, should appeal to the massive number of people who like Harry Potter.

Moving on, Confessions of a Superhero might tie in well to all the Watchmen hubbub going on.  Cracked Not Broken sounds like a stunning, real-life version of Requiem For A Dream.

Thanks to new content partnerships with SnagFilms and Cinelan, there are plenty of other selections, too.  And a post on the Hulu Blog notes, "This is just the first step for us in supporting a genre that should benefit disproportionately from the growth in online video. We’ll continue to introduce more titles and filmmaker Q&As this spring . . ."

Looks like it’s time to get a comfy office chair, big monitor, and start buying popcorn in bulk.
