King of Disturbing

King of Kong
Just finished watching King of Kong, the documentary over the “battle” to win the best Donkey Kong score. As documentaries go, it was well done. But, I honestly spent the first minutes in disbelief that these were real people and real stories and the remaining time in disgust about the pettiness. Sadly, though, it’s real, at least as real as a film can be. I hope in actuality none of these people are as pathetic as they appear on screen (especially this guy brian). This quote from a Washington Post review sums it up: “The competition is so vicious because the stakes are so low.”
