Com uma edição nada sutil mas igualmente esperta e cativante, a disputa pelo maior score num arcade é contada sob um drama de superação tal, que o documentário é praticamente uma variante nerd de “Rocky [Balboa]” (1976). De um lado do ringue, Billy Mitchel, microempresário egocêntrico e mimado que apóia sua arrogância no título que recebeu na adolescência, de melhor jogador de Don... read more

Description: In the early 1980s, legendary Billy Mitchell set a Donkey Kong record that stood for almost 25 years. This documentary follows the assault on the record by Steve Wiebe, an earnest teacher from Washington who took up the game while unemployed. The top scores are monitored by a cadre of players and fans associated with Walter Day, an Iowan who runs Funspot, an annual tournament. Wiebe breaks Mitchell's record in public at Funspot, and Mitchell promptly mails a controversial video tape of himself setting a new record. So Wiebe travels to Florida hoping Mitchell will face him for the 2007 Guinness World Records. Will the mind-game-p ... (more)

" Don't get chumpatized.Story/Writing: ★★★★ (4/5) Great storytelling. I know that this is edited to make the "rivalry" seem like more than it is, but that is part of what makes this movie great. Acting: N/A I don't know if I should/could rate acting here? I think (I, obviously, don't know, because I don't know any of these people) everyone in this is pretty much just being themselves. I'm sure they hammed it up a bit for the camera, but that's expected. Visuals: ★★☆ (2.5/5) Nothin"
