The King of Kong

My latest review for Pajiba is of a movie you should all see:
Seth Gordon's documentary is a heavy-handed but consistently hysterical and ultimately moving chronicle of two men vying to be the world champion of Donkey Kong. Throughout, Gordon capitalizes on a fact that hounds the increasingly tired genre of "mockumentary": Truth is not only stranger than fiction, it's also much, much funnier.

I've been anxiously awaiting this release but am disappointed that it does not appear to be coming to the greater Detroit area any time soon. I will have to wait for Netflix to mail it to me.

Have you seen the movie Trekkies? Although I haven't seen King of Kong yet, it reminds me of it.
