Here's the irony -- I ended up watching this fascinating documentary on algorithms *because* of Netflix's (extremely accurate) recommendation algorithm.
As someone who works with algorithms in the field, I found this documentary to be a super enjoyable watch. This documentary, in my opinion, will especially be a good watch for those curious about the BIG world of algorithms, especially given the fact that the documentary neatly explains many of the most widely used algorithms in real life and shows how it's entrenched in nearly every part of our modern lives. This should also be a good watch for young children to get them curious about algorithms and computer science in general.
