I don’t know about you, but I’m amazed by people who are able to solve Rubix Cubes at massive speeds. Hell, I’m amazed by anyone who can solve them! I remember I was in Las Vegas one year with my wife and we were eating at a buffet when a group of about 15-20 people came in and sat at long table next to us. They all had Rubix Cubes and they were all practicing for a speed competition. It was pretty cool!
Netflix has released a trailer for a Rubix Cube documentary coming out titled The Speed Cubers and here’s the synopsis:
Speed Cubing, which is the competitive sport of solving a Rubik’s Cube in mere seconds, has grown into a worldwide phenomenon in recent years. For nearly a decade in the sport, Feliks Zemdegs from Australia, has reigned unchallenged as the king of cubers, the greatest of all time. That is, until now. The cubing world was stunned when an unknown challenger named Max Park from California took home the Gold in 2017 and emerged onto the global stage. Since then, Max’s rise to the top has been swift and steady, save for one obstacle in his way – Feliks. The two have been trading wins and world records steadily, neither one able to truly dominate while the other still competes. But rather than developing into a bitter rivalry, Feliks & Max have instead grown their competitive relationship into a tender yet complicated friendship.
The Speed Cubers looks like it tells a wonderful and sweet story and it’s a film I’ll definitely be checking out! The movie was directed by Sue Kim. It’s only 40-minutes long and it will be released on Netflix on July 29th.
