The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters


Seth Gordon’s documentary King of Kong follows the exploits of the two best Donkey Kong players in America. Billy Mitchell has held the world record for the popular video game for over twenty years. The film covers his rise to prominence, and the circle of associates he keeps at the Twin Galaxies arcade, a place where he is revered for his prowess at a number of games. Eventually Steve Wiebe, with time on his ends now that he finds himself without a job, decides to seriously hunker down and challenge Mitchell’s record. Gordon gets close to both men, and shows how the passionate subculture surrounding these two have very powerful feelings toward both men. ~ Perry Seibert, All Movie Guide
