A documentary about 2 guys vying for the championship of Donkey Kong, a 1981 arcade videogame sounds like the lamest thing in the world. It isn't. It's a great documentary, which does show how pathetic these guys are, and their wives as well. My favorite line "What about me? I"M the Donkey Kong guy's wife!" These guys are so stuck in time, one of them even still has a 1977 hairstyle.
A documentary comprised of giant egos, passive-agressive worshipping fiends that are also highly competitive manchildren, restraining orders, dubious VHS tapes and housewives that should be given a medal for their understanding and patience. The result is beyond funny.
If you are not entertained by this, you must be dead already. "Documentary" is probably a misnomer for King of Kong, but it's edited together with so much panache, with such clearly defined opposing forces in Steve and Billy that you can't help but be drawn in. If you're a video game fan, you'll be in awe. And shucks, one mom even admits her son might be slightly autistic. Highly recommended.
A documentary about ancient game that used to be popular when Baby Raptor Jesus still wearing his diaper, Donkey Kong (I never like this game anyway), our protagonist is just a man who is obsessed of breaking a world record set before by a hairy douchebag with big boobed wife and amazing collection of bad ties...
Un documental que concentra toda una estructura argumental. Es el videojuego como estilo de vida, el nacimiento de un mito-jugador y una sociedad. Luego ingresa la otra historia sobre el típico perdedor y su oportunidad de reivindicarse, el triunfo frustrado, toda una sociedad que lo subestima, el nacimiento de una enemistad, la desmitificación del héroe y el nacimiento de otro. Una historia de lucha hegemónica.
