Converting from AC to DC

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
I just learned that in a DC motor you use a commutator to convert the AC current to DC. And in my other course I learned that you can convert AC current to DC using a rectifier circuit. If this is the case, why don’t we use a rectifier circuit in a DC motor to convert the AC to DC?
