The second richest man in the world (the first being Jeff Bezos), Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist, the accolades for Bill Gates are many. Revered in the world of tech and entrepreneurs, hated by a few, but one thing is for certain, you cannot ignore Bill Gates.
Streaming giant Netflix is known for their documentary originals as much as their fiction shows. Documentary series like Making A Murder, The Ted Bundy Tapes, Diagnosis, Wild Wild Country among others have managed to create compelling conversations around different subjects. Directed by Oscar winning director, Davis Guggenheim who also directed one of the best documentaries of our time, An Inconvenient Truth, the trailer of Inside Bill’s Brain looks interesting and insightful.
We see snippets of Bill’s life in present day intercut with his early days at Microsoft, one of the most iconic tech companies ever. A shrewd and meticulous entrepreneur, Bill’s mind was always working, even when it seemed like it was not. This ‘always-on’ attitude is perhaps what led to the genius of his work and later on, his success. Like narrated by his wife Melinda Gates in the trailer, Bill can be best described as a “multiprocessor” steeped in chaos.
A body of immensely impressive work later, Bill finally let go of his role of Microsoft and used his power wisely – to make a difference in today’s world. Through the work of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, him along with his wife have been doing substantial work in healthcare, education etc. especially in poverty-stricken areas around the world. Another focus of the foundation is to help fight global warming.
While most documentaries delve into specific events, it is interesting to see this one trying to approach a far more complex issue – the working of the human mind. By taking us behind the scenes on the psyche of one of the world’s most prolific men, Inside Bill’s Brain is sure to be an interesting watch.
Inside Bill’s Brain: Deconstructing Bill Gates will be streaming on Netflix on September 20th
