Really a thought provoking documentary that tells the story of hidden math all around us
9 May 2018 | by nathanstormSee all my reviews

This was a great documentary that raises questions like, what is the best way to looks through millions of bit of information and how math can get you out of any maze. Definitely worth a watch for those who want to see through the lines of life's normal experience.
