    ★★★★

    Playful summary of the life of Claude Shannon. I was initially a little perturbed by the re-creation of period interviews with actors but, once acclimatized, it actually improved appreciation of the man, his character and his work.

    Horribly judgemental and biased. There's a really interesting backstory here but it's laid aside to just try and make the subject squirm and feel bad.

    ★★

    I really liked the first one, I did not feel the same about this one. There's the odd great scene in there but it's generally confused and feels more like a movie for teenagers than an edgy parody of the superhero genre.
