Best is not exactly a simple term - there are a lot of ways something can be best.

Here are two articles from reviewing in detail many polarizing filters.

There's an explanation of the theory behind them as well ( detailed ).

Polarizers are often described as colour neutral, which frankly baffles me for two reasons.

Firstly there are no filters, even ND 0 filters, which are truly colour neutral. The very best ND 0 filters ( maybe Singh-Ray ) are close, but nothing is perfect.

Secondly, the function of a polarizing filter is to block light based on polarization, which is not going to be even across a frame or on every part of a scene. By definition they're going to alter the overall colour balance of a scene if they work.
