Interesting insight into another world, but gets old quickly
23 July 2019 | by replay-brandSee all my reviews

Even though the documentary provides an insight into the world of memory and above all memory competitions, it merely provides 2 tips for viewers to improve their memory. Was expecting more from the summary so that was a disappointment. A real downside for me was also that the documentary could not abstain from introducing topics like feminism, people with disabilities and Alzheimer's. I guess it (needlessly) tries to appeal to different kinds of viewers. I don't care about Sweden being the best country because of free healthcare or education. Or that Mongolia is the most beautiful country. I am trying to learn about improving my memory. But I guess these "facts" is something I memorized watching this documentary. I also got the feeling that some some of the people that were followed really did so to brag and their minutes of fame.
