Review Rumor has it that "The King of Kong," Seth Gordon's wildly entertaining docu about warring "Donkey Kong" champions, already picked up by Picturehouse for an Aug. 17 release, will be made into a mainstream feature. But Hollywood may find it difficult to cast two big-name stars willing to play it as broadly as the real-life hero and villain of this tale. Nor would many self-respecting scriptwriters dare to match the sheer improbability of these actual happenings...What follows is an intricate tale of intrigues, tourneys, minions and fools that would put a Renaissance court to shame: Acolytes scramble, factions realign, legends totter and history is written and rewritten by a folk-singing referee...Perhaps the most glorious aspect of "King of Kong" is the fact that just when it becomes obvious the filmmakers are manipulating the footage to make their hero look more heroic and their villain more Machiavellian, reality does them one better.

Review Conspiracy theories, festering grudges, intense rivalries-who knew that the highly competitive and socially challenged world of classic video gamers was so fraught with melodrama? At least that's the impression left by Seth Gordon's terrifically entertaining documentary The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters, his seriocomic account of two middle-aged gamers going mano y mano to set the Guinness World Record on that arcade golden oldie, Donkey Kong. Both acerbically funny and deeply sympathetic, Gordon's smartly observed chronicle of the gamers' rivalry unfolds like a real-life cross between a Christopher Guest mockumentary and a classic, Frank Capra underdog story...An audience favorite on the film festival circuit, The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters is a laugh-out-loud funny and rousing documentary that's far more compelling than the would-be summer blockbusters crowding the multiplex.
