A documentary that follows a billionaire couple as they begin construction on a mansion inspired by Versailles. During the next two years, their empire, fueled by the real estate bubble and cheap money, falters due to the economic crisis.
Filmed over nearly five years in twenty-five countries on five continents, and shot on seventy-millimetre film, Samsara transports us to the varied worlds of sacred grounds, disaster zones, industrial complexes, and natural wonders.

Some interesting concepts presented in a way that engages on an emotional level.
I'm not a mathematician so can't talk to the completeness or accuracy of the representation on that in this documentary. What I can say is that it introduces concepts in a very digestible way that were otherwise unknown to me (and I have studied physics so am not ignorant of mathematics).
Furthermore, the previous reviewer (Carey Butler) seems to have missed the boat on the concept of dangerous knowledge... the documentary isn't saying that the knowledge is dangerous, but rather that the minds or persons that can develop it are on the edge of reality ...the line between brilliance and madness, particularly when it is tuned to a concept so abstract and unfathomable as infinity (dare I say it) infinitely narrow.
