I agree... Some stuff it's better to add a bit of fiction to, and some stuff is better depicted as it was. Exactly.

I don't see the point of adding fiction. Surely it debases the historical credibility.

It really depends on the subject and the film itself.

I like factual documentaries as much as possible. Especially when it comes to my religious documentaries. Those are my favourite.

Exactly!!!

The film JFK is a perfect example. So many people have accepted fiction from this film as fact.

GONE! GONE!
Well, if it's gonna be an interpretation I want it to be very clear from the get-go otherwise I feel cheated. I don't mind them though.

If I watch something that is not strictly a documentary I usually look up the real facts. I like to know the real truth but I do enjoy the fictional aspect to push a story along.

In documentaries, I prefer them entirely factually correct. In films based on historical events, I'm a bit more lenient.

I like actually real documentaries with real footage if they have them but sometimes these are boring and people don't like them.

Depends, as long as it's clear whether it's real or a fake up front.

If it's a documentary I expect than to provide facts. I thought that was the point?

I prefer actual documentaries, but both are good.

I prefer factual documentaries. I find the real story more fascinating than some Hollywood dramatization.
