The King of Kong

Question: How many moral lessons can you fit into a very funny, very engaging documentary about video-game-aholics? Answer: As many as you want.

I LOVED that movie! My favorite part is probably Billy's toady, I don't recall the guy's name, trudging around the arcade and informing everyone that Steve was about to hit the kill screen in Donkey Kong.

Billy has given interviews claiming that the filmmakers manipulated footage, but of course he'd say that, because they made him look like Mullet Blofeld with hot sauce.

You're thinking of Brian Kuh, he was hysterical.

The DVD shows a slightly warmer side of Billy, if you watch the (somewhat interminable) extras.
