do yourself the favor of seeing the king of kong: a fistful of quarters, arguably one of the greatest accomplishments in documentary film work I have ever seen. a topic easily dismissed as laughable made me and my friends shiny cheeked the other night as we sat transfixed by the story of not as good becomes better and overcomes evil (in this case, a disturbingly egotistical helmut haired hot sauce distributor/video game champion). characters too good for fiction, the wisdom of children and the proof that sometimes, just being a good person is enough (though kicking ass is always a bonus)--this film does what films should always do--entertain and move you. steve wiebe you're my hero!
