    It does indeed seem fantastic. However, anyone with a normal undamaged brain is capable of instant recall just as Magnus's performance here. It has to do with the connections between the conscious mind and the subconscious mind. In Magnus's case, the photographic memory lies within a natural genetically enhanced frontal lobe that enables conscious direction of the vast reservoir of memory. Fact is, we all mentally absorb everything we've ever seen, heard, smelled or felt and it is duly recorded in our subconscious mind. As astonishing as this sounds, it is true. Our frontal lobes are like a valve that allows only a microscopic amount of our subconscious memory to be utilized by our conscious mind at any given moment. Think of it as a focus mechanism. And therein lies the secret of the savant mind. The simplest way to gain conscious control over the frontal lobe to enable total recall is

    People forget that it's much easier to remember things that you find them very interesting. However, it's amazing he remembered a Harry Potter game because, unlike the game in Queen's Gambit, it probably was not interesting...or maybe to him any chess in a film with actors is at least mildly interesting.

      just to explain, it's not that strange. the arrogance isn't actually arrogance, it's him being able to laugh at himself actually. he does it tongue in cheek. but he also recognizes that statistically / legally he is the best player in the world right now so it's not like he'll deny the truth, he just decides to have fun with it.
