Daniel Tammet is supposed to be one of the smartest people in the world. He's a savant and he has synesthesia and he can rattle off pi to the 22,500 thousandth digit. Sounds like fun! My hairdresser says that he's going to disprove string theory or something. This documentary from a year or so ago is kind of cheesy at times but there's a handful of other crazy smart people in it who are all so smart that they're virtually retarded. One of them is the dude that "Rain Man" was based on: He's the smartest and the most retarded of them all. It's like his brain is constantly exploding in his skull. One of best parts is when they show this group of Korean kids learning how to do impossibly difficult math equations on their invisible mind-abacuses and they sort of look like they're having seizures (skip to about 36:00 for that). I also like it when they take Daniel to Iceland and force him to learn the language in a week. The only downside I can come up with is the way this is shot in a kind of unsolved mystery reenactment style. Also, when talking about how much Daniel cried as a baby, is it really necessary to cut to slo-mo stock footage of a crying baby? We know what crying is.
