What makes Bill Gates tick?
That’s the subject of “Inside Bill’s Brain,” a new three-part documentary on Netflix from Academy Award-winning director Davis Guggenheim.
Each episode in the series introduces three huge global issues The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has tackled recently — safe sanitation technology, polio eradication and nuclear power — then switches back in time to see how Gates solved other complex issues in his life as a younger man.
After spending so much time with Gates, Guggenheim said the popular perception of him as a cold, dispassionate thinker isn’t true. Gates, he found, is the first person in the family to cry at movies.
