King of Kong: Fistful of Quarters
February 08, 2008
Tonight I watched an excellent film about all things, the competitive world of champion vintage video games. Its an unlikely source of drama, or, frankly, interest, but I was amazed at how caught up I was. There have been a number of good and interesting documentaries lately about unhealthy obsessions with meaningless competitions such as spelling bees, crossword puzzles and even scrabble, but this was the best by far. Brilliant ending...
