King Of Kong: Fistful Of Quarters


I played Donkey Kong about 20 times in the 1980s, never lasting more than a couple of minutes. I really don't even like video games -so much so that I don't even own a Playstation or other gaming system. So I was surprised that I really, really liked this documentary (released last month) about two guys competing against each other for the world record of points in that classic arcade game. It almost bordered on the bizarre.

I heard about it after it won the DFW Critics award for best documentary.

Barry, a friend of mine saw this in Austin a few months ago. He said it was outstanding.
