The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters
Time Out says
Mitchell, with his stubbly beard, mullet haircut and dazzling array of patriotic neckties is a documentary supervillain up there with George W. Bush in ‘Fahrenheit 9/11’. He flaunts a colossal ego as he delivers a torrent of highly quotable faux pas (‘No matter what I say, it draws controversy. It’s sort of like the abortion issue.’). You could hardly call it a paragon of impartial filmmaking, but this is still a compelling and immersive glance into the nature of competitiveness and the corrupting aspects of fame.
