Movies and art are a great form to spread knowledge. After all, cinema not only aims to entertain, it also aims to enlighten and spark a fire of curiousity. Here are 6 brilliant movies which will leave you researching some major trivia and also leave you feeling a lot smarter:
This list obviously needs a Stanley Kubrick classic. This sci-fi movie connects the past and the future when Dr. Dave Bowman is sent on a space mission, and their computer system HAL exhibits some strange behaviour.2. Pi
The name is self suggestive but the movie is definitely worth a watch, even if Maths turns you off as a human being. The movie is a psychological thriller which follows a number genius named Max who suffers from bouts of paranoia and social anxiety as well. The film basically aims to explain the relation of Maths with the universe with underlying themes of religion and mysticism.3. The Imitation Game
Another Maths related subject but please, give this a chance if, like me, you also love to Google everything you witnessed aesthetically and understand a concept deeply. This one narrates the story of Alan Turning, who we also know as the father of modern computing. This film won an Academy Award for its marvellous screenplay, so in case coding and the tech industry is your thing, watch it.4. Memento
A movie exactly like you’d expect the genius mind of Christopher Nolan to make. This psychological thriller takes you into the life of Leonard Shelby, an insurance investigator and is incapable of forming new memories. It is very complex, but will perplex you in a great way.5. A Beautiful Mind
This movie explains the origin of the concept of Nash Equilibrium, which belonged to John Forbes Nash Jr. If economics and punching numbers intrigues you, this must be on your list.6. Good Will Hunting
The makers of this movie actually brought in the expertise of an MIT professor to seek help for all the complex equations and Maths one witnesses on the screen and the basic idea is to explain that education and knowledge can come from anywhere . Do yourself a favour and watch it.
