Anyone got any Math movies that are actually about the fucking Math? By that I mean no Good Will Hunting / Imitation Game shit that's about "muh poor misunderstood genius" but an actual Math movie.

A Beautiful Mind is a movie about a mathematician and I think thats the best you are going to get.

That's a documentary giving a flavor of the working life

I sort of kind of also like the BBC series Dangerous Knowledge with 20 minute segments on some giants who killed themselves (Cantor, Boltzmann, GĂ¶del, Turing),

but I don't really want to recommend it too much for the cringeworthy attemps to explain the math behind the issues they talk about.

There is a really good PhD thesis turned history book called "Modern algebra and the rise of mathematical structure" which discusses the perception of the meaning and content of the field called "Algebra" between, roughly, 1850 to 1950, i.e. from Galois to Grothendieck.

Fermat's Room

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1016301/

It''s Spanish but watch it with English subtitles..

Thank me later.

>>7804155

Pi is the closest i know

...

Oh and there's this one documentary about proving Fermat's theorem

I recommend this. Covers elementary mathematical concepts with lucid animations at an easy pace.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flatland

This has 3 adaptations.

Aronofsky's Pi

There are some documentaries about math, such as this PBS documentary:

Donald Duck in Mathmagic Land.

I have a fear of documentaries. Any good math videos that aren't documentaries?

>>

>>7804738

That is an interesting phobia.

Do you find yourself being vicariously embarrassed for the subjects?

>>

Mean Girls.

>>7804779

I also have a phobia of museums, authority, groups, postmodernism, praise, rules, ...

Sounds interesting Emma Stone guy; am downloading now. The people like Galois and Noether who managed to have the insight to completely change the way we view things are fascinating, especially the path those ideas took to mainstream acceptance.

only virginal autists want to see that shit

This

I was hoping to find it

>only virginal autists are interested in math

Anon your insecurity is showing

>>

A Beautiful Mind is probably the best one I have seen. I also liked Pi and Proof.

But I think all movies fall into the Good Will Hunting category to some extent

>>

>>7807259

im sorry, are you equating watching movies about a subject to the actual subject?

so following your splendid logic, the people that watched interstellar are all interested in physics

>>

>>7807310

You need to learn2readingcomprehension.

>the logic room

Degenerate math but it's an oky movie

Can't expect to much from spanish films

>>

>>7804155

From a financial standpoint, no one would want to make an actual math movie because you autistic elitists won't get your asses to the theaters.

Watch Flatland:The Film (2007)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyuNrm4VK2w&ab_channel=Superheavyweight

It's a very interesting movie.
