Scientists do not usually become globally recognised figures in popular culture. But Stephen Hawking, as this documentary makes clear, is no ordinary scientist. His Brief History of Time revolutionised scientific thinking about and popular understanding of the Big Bang. His voice, provided by a computer since motor neurone disease robbed him of his own, has graced The Simpsons, while Benedict Cumberbatch memorably played him in a biopic. Written and narrated by Hawking, this provides a frequently entertaining and often poignant insight into a life marred by illness and graced by genius.
Stylish, neatly constructed film about a maths genius who's sure he's close to discovering the key to everything and that hostile forces are watching.
