After watching “The Green Ray” by Eric Rohmer where an old man explained how the green ray phenomenon came about, I am inspired to look for more films that includes a mini-lecture on some mathematics and scientific concept.

Below are some films that I can think of. Feel free to add more suggestions. Thanks!

Back to the Future II – Time Travelling
A Beautiful Mind – Game Theory
The Green Ray – Green Ray Optical Phenomenon
An Incovenient Truth – Greenhouse Effect
Moebius – Topology
The Lost World: Jurrassic Park – Chaos Theory
PI – Number Theory
Primer – Error Checking Devices
