Well it's finally here(for Australia at least). I'm so hyped to watch it after school. It's gonna be great!
Is it available for you now? I had read Netflix tend to release at midnight PST worldwide, so in a little over two hours.

Just finished watching it. Loved it.

Felix, Max and both their families come across really well. Very emotional.

@Kit Clement makes a brief appearance, and does a good job of explaining the technical aspect. I would have liked to see more of that, but understand that much more if, may not really be suitable for a wide audience. But overall a great watch, hopefully a lot of people watch it.

I watched it, it was mainly about Max Park, and how Feliks helped him. I think the documentary could have been better by focusing more on Feliks so Max and Feliks are equal. At some points my heart rate went up to 132 BPM!

yes I was wearing a heart rate monitor be quiet don't tell anyone

To me, it looks like a documentary that's made for non-cubers. Max and Feliks aren't that good friends. They almost never see each other, they live at the 2 different sides of the world.
While it's obviously true they can't have that much interaction due to living on opposite continents like you said, I still think that they're great friends. Not like best friends, but they definitely have an amazing friendship when they're together that you wouldn't see rivals having in many other competitive activities

I'll watch it later but being aimed at "non-cubers" is a good thing i think. Content aimed directly at us nerds would leave a sour taste in the average persons mouth or drive them away before they even took a bite. If we can get some positive exposure in the community from those uninterested or unaware of the hobby, that's a benefit to us all in my opinion.

I watched and I think that it showed a really nice sport story. And I mean it in the widest possible sense: there is friendship, there is good rivalry, there is competition. Sucks that both didn't really do well in that 3x3 final and so the doc ended on a sober note, but oh, it happens to the best. And I think there is an overall very very positive message.

I don't think you could be any farther from the truth. This community has allowed me to have some of my closest friends live on the other side of the planet, and this is a very common thing among cubers. To think that you have to live near someone and see them a lot in person to be close friends with them is simply incorrect in this community and era.

Facts. I would consider myself friends with all of the active members on these forums.
