Critic Reviews for Inside Bill's Brain: Decoding Bill Gates Limited Series

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

Inside Bill's Brain often feels more superficial than it actually is because it switches topics so freely.

Top Critic

We're walked through the tech founder and humanitarian's personal history in a manner that grows stultifying the more praise gets ladled on.

Sep 18, 2019 | Full Review…

The series is smoothly edited by Adrienne Gits and Brad Grossman, and animated sequences - which have become something of a staple of documentary films - are deftly integrated.

Sep 5, 2019 | Full Review…

[C]lickbait title disappointment aside, the real Inside Bill's Brain is still pretty good.

Sep 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Despite some of the docuseries' eye-rolling overpraise, Inside Bill's Brain is about as close a look at Bill Gates anyone has gotten, so it's a win in our book.

Sep 20, 2019 | Full Review…

The goal of Inside Bill's Brain is not to entertain the audience, but to justify Gates' wealth and the way he spends it.

Audience Reviews for Inside Bill's Brain: Decoding Bill Gates: Limited Series

  • Jun 24, 2020
    Very bad documentary.
  • Jun 03, 2020
    Watching this series along with reading Steve Job's autobiography is an interesting experience. The story of Bill in this documentary demonstrated to us that people as successful as Bill, still struggles to solve problems in the world. And to solve any significant problems in the world, it takes patience and years or even decades of work. A great show to remind us the value of patience. To end with his mother's quote, "Each one of us has to start out with developing our own definition of success. And when we have these specific expectations of ourselves, we are more likely to live up to them. Ultimately it is not what you get or even what you give, it is what you become."

    It is very one-sided for documentary. It is portraying Gates in a very emotional non objective way, in order for us to like him. He is a philanthropist, an innovative, a workaholic, a genius and of course a human being. The information on his life and his achievements are very interesting but it didn't reach the objectivity I wanted from a documentary. Because if he is of the scale he is portrayed I would except more scientist and big minds to comment on him and his achievements and display a more multifaceted picture.

    Good insight in to the life and driving forces behind bill gates personal and professional pursuits. So lovely to learn more about Melinda and her role in their companies and philanthropic/charitable ventures.

    I was in after getting impressed with the title and promotions. Unable to put it down after starting, i completed it. Good to know about his mother, wife and 2 close friends a bit on close. The part of he sorting schedule for students in classes is similar to math whiz Ramanujan. The parallel cut about his bio and charity is sort of downside. Overall, its one dimensional and less layered, but good watch though!

    Basic story is good. Interviewer made me cringe. Animation was corny. Better without it. Less "Bill" worship would make it easier to watch. Less of Melinda extolling the virtues and non virtues of her husband. I would like to hear Bill expound on the issues - more of him. Less of the interviewer. I would say the title is not really what the story is about. It's more about the projects Bill is trying to accomplish.

    I think it's an incredible series that gets you to think about the world in a different light.
