Streaming Documentary Review | Monster in the Mind
Monster in the Mind is a compelling documentary about a journalist’s inquiry concerning the background information of the next plague: Alzheimer’s. Many carry this disease, and there are actually multiple types of it. The journalist’s questions lead her all around the world, to different researchers, doctors, scientists, and geneticists. In this interesting documentary, the subject, Jean Carper, who is a journalist, asks interesting questions concerning the disease, such as where it comes from, who is more likely to get it, how do genetics play a role, and so on. It was extremely informative.
I really enjoyed this documentary. It was interesting, the music was good, and the overall film making was excellent. Jean Carper did a wonderful job of asking questions that any normal person would ask about Alzheimer’s. She also shared many small tips and tricks that would help someone reduce their chances of getting a case of Alzheimer’s, such as; learning how to juggle; augmenting your brain everyday by doing puzzles; keeping yourself healthy in all aspects (physically, emotionally, mentally), and trying to expand your knowledge as much as you can. I very much recommend this documentary to anyone who wants to learn more about the disease and your mind.
