Movie Review: King of Kong, A Fistful of Quarters

I recently caught this 2007 documentary on DVD. It was fantastic. Here is the trailer:

It’s an intriguing conceit, but the trailer doesn’t do it justice. There is a Guffman-like quality to the film, and you find yourself asking whether it could really be a documentary as opposed to a mockumentary.

It is indeed a work of non-fiction, and a delightful one. It’s hero is one of the rare gamers that could possibly fill the protagonists role and remain appealing to the general public. I think you’ll like it.

    In the back of my mind, I always equated Donkey Kong with Abortion. I am just glad that someone put into words what I was thinking.
