Recently I have been lucky enough to watch 3 really good documentaries that would interest many people who play games, like Disney or have any sort of creative interest at all.
Indie Game: The Movie
The first is pretty well known. This film follows the development of a few indie games from their early stages to release. It is a really interesting look behind the scenes and into the minds of the developers and shows some deep-set problems/feelings that you wouldn’t expect- one of the developer’s game was a critical success and sold millions but he went into depression as he felt nobody understood the true meaning and idea behind his work.
This is a MUST WATCH for anybody who enjoys games or is creative at all.
The King Of Kong: A Fist Full Of Quarters
The second film I hadn’t heard of before. This film mainly focuses on 2 guys, Billy Mitchell and Steve Wiebe, in their quest to set the World Record top score on Donkey Kong, and the really dark and deviously shocking things behind the scenes. It’s a brilliant documentary for gamers and is better than it sounds!
(Sadly I could only find a really low-res trailer, the real thing is good quality)
Waking Sleeping Beauty
The final film is a behind the scenes look at Disney and the political power struggle in the company following Walt’s death. This is a great watch for any Disney fan and people who are interested in politics and power struggles within companies.
Check them out and let me know what you think 🙂
